At Ukraine’s request, NATO provides technical advice to support the country’s long-term resilience and civil preparedness activities. A NATO Resilience Advisory Support Team, approved by NATO’s Civil Emergency Planning Committee and made up of experts from Allied countries, is currently supporting the development of Ukraine’s National Resilience System. The two-day workshop focused on providing recommendations for Ukraine to take forward.

Deputy Assistant Secretary General of Defence Policy and Planning Division, Mr. Jörg See said: 

Ukraine has come a long way in building a national resilience system and supporting structures from the ground up. In this context, the forthcoming implementation of new laws on Critical Infrastructure, Territorial Defence and, of course, of the National Resilience System Concept will strengthen Ukraine's preparedness to respond to and recover from shock, stress and surprise.
