During his opening speech, the Commander of the Multinational CIMIC Group, Colonel Ugo Proietto, underlined the importance of CIMIC as a fundamental pillar in NATO's operational framework to bridge the gap between military forces and the civilian population, ensuring that conduct in operations is guided by respect for human rights, cultural knowledge of the civil environment and coordination with the main players in the operating environment in order to guarantee Human Security.
The 16th CUCC represented an important stage for the further development of Human Security in the context of NATO Operations in the light of the ever-increasing geopolitical and military challenges that will involve the countries and the Armed Forces of the Atlantic Alliance.
