The purpose of the National Resilience: Opportunities and
Challenges in a Changing Security Environment conference was to
improve general understanding of the interdependencies among the
various stakeholders, help establish communities of interest and
identify proposals that contribute to building resilience.
By bringing together military and police, other government departments, and the private sector, the conference also supported NATO’s seven baseline requirements for resilience. The event was intended to complement and reinforce the work already underway by North Atlantic Treaty Organization. In particular, it built on, and developed further, the achievements of ACT NATO’s Interdependency in Resilience conference held in Norfolk, VA, in May 2017.
