Physical security, drinkable water, electricity, office infrastructure, pharmaceutical products – civilian CSDP Missions would not run without them. The security, logistical and medical services provided by the Mission support departments of the ten civilian CSDP Missions are a precondition for their ability to function. Running Missions in distant countries – in locations as diverse as Agadez, Baghdad, Tripoli or Mtshketa – and providing for approximately 2,000 multi-lingual and multi-cultural staff in order for them to be able to carry out their work is a formidable challenge. A breakthrough in the field of mission support, enhancing both preparedness and the rapidity of the EU’s reaction to crisis situations, was the opening of the civilian CSDP Warehouse in Sweden June 2018.
