Even though the actual event in Berlin is still months away, the preparation and analysis for Exercise Common Effort 2017 is in full swing.
This week, our partners from the Common Effort Community visited 1 (German/Netherlands) Corps to study the scenario, which is based on the current situation in Iraq, and explore how military and civil organizations can work together in the early stages of an operation.
For a military power to resolve any conflict, it is vital to cooperate closely with civil organizations. In fulfilling its mission, 1 (GE/NL) Corps therefore believes in the Comprehensive Approach. In 2011, this mindset resulted in the exercise Common Effort, which now alternates annually between The Hague and Berlin.
So far, over 40 organizations have joined our Common Effort Community.
