Combined Joint Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defence Task Force
The Alliance’s multinational CBRN defence capability
NATO today faces a whole range of complex challenges and threats to its security. Current threats include the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their delivery systems. Rapid advances in biological science and technology also continue to increase the bio-terrorism threat against NATO forces and populations. The Alliance needs to be prepared to prevent, protect and recover from WMD attacks or CBRN¹ events.
