Posted: Aug 10, 2023

The Institute for Security Governance (ISG) Emergency Management and Resilience (EM&R) team supported a Kosovo-led inter-agency working group review and update of Kosovo’s National Response Plan (NRP). While completing revisions to the NRP, the working group identified use of a National Response Framework (NRF) as an EM best practice, and determined to develop an NRF for Kosovo as a strategic goal. Kosovo will use the revised NRP as its EM construct in the interim after formal approval and while developing the NRF. The Office of Defense Cooperation (ODC) views this strategy as progress toward reform and good governance.
