Italian CIMIC Instructors in Portugal

Multinational CIMIC Group (MNCG) Instructors supported the CIMIC seminar at the Portuguese Joint Combined Operational Headquarter


Motta di Livenza, September 18, 2019. During the week 09th – 13th September, a Mobile Education training Team (METT) made-up by Multinational CIMIC Group (MNCG) instructors, supported the development of a CIMIC seminar at the Joint Combined Operational Headquarter of the Portuguese Armed Forces, based in the “Reduto Gomes Freire” barracks in Oeiras (Lisbon).

The seminar was aimed to educate and train selected personnel of the Portuguese Armed Forces who will stand-up for the NATO Response Force 2020 (NRF 20) as a CIMIC Unit.

During the seminar the instructors of the MNCG illustrated to the class the principle of the NATO CIMIC Doctrine, the spectrum of the CIMIC activities in support to a NATO operation and the main NATO Techniques, Tactics and Procedures (TTPs) addressing the liaison, the assessment of the civil environment, the CIMIC Centre and projects. The students were furthermore challenged in the practical resolution of a negotiation case-study, played in syndicate groups.

The course was opened by the speech of Rear Admiral Joao Dores Aresta, deputy Chief of Staff of the Portuguese Joint Combined HQ.

The support to the seminar by the MNCG METT is a recurrent activity started on 2015, which is aimed to increase the interoperability among the MNCG and affiliated CIMIC units belonging to the participating Nations.
