United States Southern Command Command's Strategy for 2016 provides a vision of more collaboration with other USG agencies and also with NGOs/IOs and partner nations to ensure security, enhance stability and enable prosperity in the Americas. To that end USSOUTHCOM Command Engineers have organized a series of regional Military Engineering and Environment Conferences in the region. The objectives include supporting host nations in building institutional capacities; increasing sustainability and resilience of partner nations to natural disasters; identifying cooperative civil-military venues, developing recommendations on military engineering and environmental challenges facing the AOR, and creating strategic alliances throughout the region.
