Planning, Executing, and Assessing FHA/DR Operations

Foreign humanitarian assistance (FHA), to include foreign disaster relief, consists of Department of Defense (DOD) activities, normally in support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) or Department of State (DOS), conducted outside the United States, its territories, and possessions to relieve or reduce human suffering, disease, hunger, or privation.

FHA activities conducted by US Armed Forces range from steady-state program activities supporting geographic combatant commanders (GCC) security cooperation and related programs to conducting limited contingency operations in support of another United States Government department or agency. FHA operations can be supported by other activities conducted by US military forces or they may be conducted concurrently with other types of related operations and activities such as dislocated civilian support, security operations, and foreign consequence management.

The Department of Defense has unique assets for effective response and can play a key role in foreign humanitarian crises. For example, the US military possesses exceptional operational reach that can be employed to enhance an initial response. Additionally, the US military augments private sector capability and thus limits threats to regional stability. Furthermore, the US military’s unmatched capabilities in logistics, command and control (C2), communications, and mobility are able to provide rapid and robust response to dynamic and evolving situations among vastly different military, civilian, and government entities.

Regardless of where the U.S. military conducts operations, the complex and ambiguous nature of today’s contemporary operational environment will often include large groups of displaced populations -- to include refugees, internally displaced persons, migrants, and stateless persons.

Population and resources control (PRC) consists of two distinct, yet linked, components: populace control and resources control. For practical and security reasons, military forces employ PRC measures of some type and to varying degrees across the range of military operations.

Noncombatant evacuation operations (NEOs) are conducted by the DOD to assist in evacuating US citizens and nationals, DOD civilian personnel, and designated persons whose lives are in danger from locations in a foreign nation to an appropriate safe haven, when directed by the Department of State.

Foreign consequence management (FCM) is assistance provided by the U.S. government to an impacted nation to mitigate the effects of a deliberate or inadvertent chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) incident.
