Sector for Emergency Management of Republic of Serbia hosted the Host Nation Support workshop in Belgrade. The workshop was part of our DMTP program and was used to exchange on various elements that are part of sending and receiving assistance. In the last 10 years there were over 48 activations of the Union Civil Protection Mechanism only in this part of Europe. As the solidarity is strong in the region, over the years all of our member states have learned the importance of Host Nation Support preparedness planning. At the workshop the idea to organize a table top exercise on the topic next year was suggested.
