HOW DOES NATO SUPPORT ALLIES’ RESILIENCE AND PREPAREDNESS?

WITH SARAH TARRY – DIRECTOR, DEFENCE POLICY AND CAPABILITIES DIRECTORATE

--SOUNDBITE--
“Resilience is a broad term, but for NATO it means everything in our societies that helps us function in the face of adversity. From natural disasters, to cyber attacks, disinformation campaigns, hybrid threats, and even armed conflict. Having strong civil resources, infrastructure and governments improves our ability to cope.”

RESILIENCE HELPS SOCIETIES FUNCTION IN THE FACE OF ADVERSITY

--SOUNDBITE--
“For over 70 years, ever since NATO was created, resilience has been central to our nations’ idea of peace and security.”

TEXT – RESILIENCE CENTRAL TO PEACE AND SECURITY

--SOUNDBITE--
“We live today in open societies with integrated, often privately owned services. Our governments and armed forces increasingly rely on the commercial sector for 90 per cent of military transport, 70 per cent of military communications, and 75 per cent of host nation support for military operations. “

NATO DEVELOPED BASELINE REQUIREMENTS

--SOUNDBITE--
“For these reasons, NATO has developed baseline requirements on resilience. For societies to function in the face of a crisis, they must be able to ensure the continuity of government, the strength of critical civil infrastructure, the provision of essential services, and the ability for civil and military authorities to work together.”

CONTINUE TO ADAPT TO NEW RISKS

--SOUNDBITE--
“NATO Allies have agreed to these requirements, which they use to evaluate their own level of preparedness. And Allies continue to adapt these requirements to take new risks and challenges into account, like the emerging implications of 5G communications technology, supply chain vulnerabilities, and the impact of COVID-19 type pandemics.”

NATO PROVIDES A VENUE TO SHARE PRACTICES

--SOUNDBITE--
“NATO also provides a venue for Allies and partners to share their best practices based on experience.”

--TEXT ON SCREEN--
RESILIENCE IS NATO’S FIRST LINE OF DEFENCE

--SOUNDBITE--
“Resilience is NATO’s first line of defence. It lets us absorb shocks and surprise. If we’re resilient, we are better prepared for the unexpected.”

“As the American inventor and intellect Benjamin Franklin said, ‘By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail’.
