Five Sahel countries work together to address common security challenges. The EU's Regional Advisory and Coordination Cell (RACC), a network of European experts, supports the security and defence cooperation of these five “G5 Sahel” countries’ by initiating and facilitating joint regional activities. The civilian and military CSDP Missions deployed in Mali and Niger play the central role in the concrete implementation of these activities.
Soft skin vehicles, personal protective equipment, medical kits, communication equipment and IT-hardware – these are among the equipment needed by the eleven civilian Missions deployed under the framework of the Common Security and Defence Policy. The working of 2,000 civilian women and men on three continents would not be possible without streamlined, modern logistics. The acquisition, delivery and inventory of equipment for the civilian CSDP Missions is since 2018 managed centrally by the strategic warehouse in Central Sweden.
