It can be of an immediate, short term, or protracted duration. 3.2 Principles Do No Harm - military responders must be aware of the possibility that interventions designed with the intention of producing positive outcomes can have unintended negative effects and should strive to avoid harmful unintended consequences when supporting HADR operations Impartiality assistance is provided without discriminating as to ethnic origin, gender, nationality, political opinions, race or religion. Relief of the suffering must be guided solely by needs and priority must be given to the most urgent cases of distress Neutrality assistance must be provided without engaging in hostilities or taking sides in controversies of a political, religious or ideological nature 4.0 References 4.1 United Nations General Assembly resolution 46/182 states that each State has the responsibility first and foremost to take care of the victims of natural disasters and other emergencies occurring on its territory. It defines the role of the UN in coordinating international humanitarian assistance when a Government requests external support. The Resolution 46/182 was unanimously adopted by UN Member States in Guidelines on the Use of Foreign Military and Civil Defense Assets in Disaster Relief (Oslo Guidelines) provides principles and procedures for requesting and coordinating military and civil-defense assets when these resources are deemed necessary and appropriate for humanitarian response. 4.3 Asia-Pacific Regional Guidelines for the Use of Foreign Military Assets in Natural Disaster Response Operations (APC MADRO) is a 3

6 reference guide for Member States who plan and execute foreign military support for international disaster response, and humanitarian entities. 4.4 ASEAN Regional Forum Strategic Guidance for Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief is designed to provide high level guidance for both civil and military actors in the humanitarian assistance and disaster relief arena. It provides a common point of reference for ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) members to promote a common understanding of civil-military cooperation and coordination procedures for improving interoperability and cooperation between ARF participants, and so reduce their response time in disaster relief. 4.5 ASEAN Agreement on Disaster Management and Emergency Response (AADMER) is a legally-binding regional multi-hazard and policy framework for cooperation, coordination, technical assistance and resource mobilization in all aspects of disaster management in the 10 ASEAN Member states. 4.6 Standard Operating Procedure for Regional Standby Arrangements and Coordination of Joint Disaster Relief and Emergency Response Operations (SASOP) provides the guides and templates to initiate the establishment of the ASEAN Standby Arrangements for Disaster Relief and Emergency Response, the procedures for joint disaster relief and emergency response operations, the procedures for the facilitation and utilization of military and civilian assets and capacities, and the methodology for the periodic conduct of the ASEAN regional disaster emergency response simulation exercises (ARDEX). 4.7 Standard Operating Procedures for ASEAN Armies Cooperation in HADR Operations in Southeast Asia Region that serves as a guide for procedures for joint HADR operations and the facilitation and utilization of ASEAN armies assets and capacities. 4.8 Standard Operating Procedures for the Utilization of ASEAN Military Assets for HADR Operations 4.9 Concept Paper on the Use of ASEAN Military Assets and Capabilities in HA/DR discusses the utilization of military assets and capacities in support of the ASEAN Standby Arrangements as provided for under the AADMER Concept Paper on Establishment of Logistics Support Framework is aimed as a guide at promoting and achieving effective cooperation among ASEAN defense and military establishments in areas of common interests to complement existing mechanisms and institutions such as the ASEAN Agreement on Disaster Management and Emergency Response (AADMER) and ASEAN Coordination Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on disaster management (AHA), and engender a multiplier effect on present initiatives. 4

13 Annexes Annex A Basic Naval Support to HADR Operations Security This includes providing security for the storage facilities as well as providing security for convoys and personnel delivering emergency aid. Foreign naval forces might also provide security for dislocated civilian camps including maintenance of security within the camps themselves, places of worship, facilities for information dissemination, temporary shelter for threatened persons, and other HADR related activities. Relief Includes prompt aid to prevent loss of life, destruction of property and alleviate the suffering of disaster victims by providing immediate relief supplies such as water, food, shelter and first aid. One important role is to assist or facilitate the dissemination of relief information. Specific tasks may include but not limited to the following: Search and Rescue Evacuation of civilians Delivery of water, food, medical supplies/personnel, and shelter materials Establish/provide communications between relief officials and affected areas Transportation for civilian relief agencies. Civilian relief agencies may already have relief supplies and/or personnel (including medical professionals), but lack the means to rapidly reach disaster victims. Security for relief agency personnel, such as the use of military escorts (for issues and concerns regarding close civil-military cooperation). Affected Population Support This is designed to support the return or resettlement of affected persons or community. Missions include camp organization, basic construction, and administration; provision of food, potable water, supplies, medical attention; basic security concerns; and placement (movement or relocation to other countries, camps, and locations). If required to execute this type of mission, the foreign naval forces should use the services and facilities of civilian agencies and the Humanitarian Community. Foreign naval forces should avoid establishing and administering camps if at all possible. Technical Assistance

14 Short-term technical assistance in areas including, but not limited to, communications restoration, relief supply management, medical care, and provision of emergency transportation for persons of risk, high priority relief supply delivery, establishment and training of Search, Rescue and Recovery Teams and de-mining. Foreign naval forces must establish implementing procedures and set priorities regarding technical advice and assistance to the affected area and relief agencies as soon as possible. The technical assistance policies should clarify what assistance may be provided as well as the source of authority for assistance. Consequence Management (CM) Operations CM operations eliminate the negative impact of 1) intentional or inadvertent release of weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear materials (CBRN) and 2) epidemics (infectious disease, biological) and natural disasters. CM operations involve those essential services and activities required to manage, mitigate, or reduce problems resulting from catastrophic events. Such services may include transportation, communications, public works, firefighting, rescue, information planning, care of mass casualties, resources support, health and medical services, urban search and rescue, disposal of hazardous materials, distribution of food, and energy-related services.
