GLOBAL RESPONSE FORCE

 

 

For prevention and mitigation of natural and human-made disasters, humanitarian and ecological

Stage I: A coordinated task force of existing agencies, especially the UN, the various states, and large private groups
Stage II: An independent standing force under an establishing protocol

The force would comprise:

1. An observation contingent, for monitoring situations and gathering facts (human rights, weapons programs, natural states, elections)
2. A development contingent, for the prevention of disasters by long-term planning and building
3. A relief contingent, for the provision of food, shelter, health care, and rescue in the event of a disaster
4. A conservation contingent, for the mitigation of damage to natural resources (firefighting, cleanup, stabilization, reclamation)
5. An armed contingent, for the separation of warring parties, for the protection of the other operations, and especially for the defense of the non-violent from violent aggression
6. A logistical contingent, for the support of all other contingents

Every contingent must have authority under the establishing protocol to execute its mandate independently, at any point in the world.

The global response force should avoid duplicating efforts, but rather consolidate efforts.
