EU approach to resilience

The last foreign affairs Council of the European Union adopted the Union's approach to resilience, by recognizing the need to take a long-term perspective  embedded in local and national policies and linked to complementary action at regional level.
This approach is to incorporate a number of key components including: the need to anticipate crises by assessing risks; a greater focus on risk
reduction, prevention, mitigation and preparedness; and further efforts to enhance swift response to and recovery from crises
