NATO 2022 Strategic Concept

Type: Report

Description: NATO’s 2022 Strategic Concept represents an increasing emphasis on climate change, including it in 7 of the 49 main points outlined, up from 1 in the 2010 version. Notably, crisis prevention and management is one of NATO’s three core tasks, and the Strategic Concept notes the climate crisis’s effect as a threat multiplier. The Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC) is NATO’s principal civil emergency response mechanism in the Euro-Atlantic area. The Centre functions as a clearing-house system for coordinating both requests for and offers of assistance mainly in case of natural and man-made disasters.

Adopted by Heads of State and Government of NATO member states at the NATO Summit in Madrid in 2022.
