The world is grappling with a multitude of diverse and complex security, crisis, emergency and disaster related challenges of increasing intensity, frequency and impact. These range from more conventional forms of conflict to asymmetric terrorist activities, states of emergency, health pandemics, as well as slow or sudden onset ‘man-made’ and ‘natural’ disasters.
