The Emergency Response Information Exchange ERIE discussion was a Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa CJTF-HOA sponsored event at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, on February 1214, 2019. It showed numerous ways in which forces of foreign militaries stationed in Djibouti can contribute to the government of Djiboutis disaster response operations and improve coordination with one another. ERIE explored coordination among the international military forces in Djibouti and the government of Djibouti to support disaster relief operations led by the government of Djibouti. The scenario examined humanitarian assistance and disaster relief HADR operations in the immediate aftermath of a large-magnitude earthquake that caused extensive damage in Djibouti City. Based on the discussion during ERIE, this research memorandum presents a series of insights and recommendations on the requirements and expectations for coordination and communication among members of the international community assisting in an HADR operation in Djibouti.
