The Crisis and Support Centre of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs is active 24/7. When a crisis occurs abroad, it protects French nationals and coordinates France’s emergency humanitarian assistance to help local populations.
Since it was created in 2008, the Crisis and Support Centre (CDCS) has adapted to cope with a wide range of crises: security, climate, humanitarian, political, health, etc.
Each year, the CDCS produces an activity report. In 2022, the work of the CDCS was particularly dense and dynamic: the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine, natural and climate emergencies and consular situations involving our nationals abroad.
