A number of expert briefings provided the necessary information on the situation in Tunisia. The aim was to come up with potential, innovative follow-up action proposals for future cooperation within the Common Effort Community.

During the High-Level Event, the aforementioned follow-up action proposals were presented to high-level representatives from the ministries, IOs, NGOs and the military. In addition, interesting keynote speeches and opportunities for networking provided additional input for participants.

For the first time at the strategic level, the Common Effort Community High-Level Event was combined with the Comprehensive Perspectives Meeting (CPM) and the award ceremony of the CIMIC Award of Excellence of the NATO CIMIC Centre of Excellence (CCOE).

Five new member organisations decided to join the Common Effort Community during the annual signing ceremony. Currently, the Common Effort Community comprises 56 member and observer organisations.
