Military Mobility: EU proposes actions to allow armed forces to move faster and better across borders


On 10 November, the European Commission and the EU High Representative put forward an Action Plan on Military Mobility 2.0 to address the deteriorating security environment following Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.

In particular, the Action Plan on Military Mobility will help European armed forces to respond better, more rapidly and at sufficient scale to crises erupting at the EU’s external borders and beyond. It will bolster the EU’s ability to support Member States and partners as regards transport of troops and their equipment.

It also includes promoting connectivity and dialogue with regional partners and enlargement countries, such as Ukraine, Moldova and the Western Balkans.

Building on the achievements of the first Action Plan launched in 2018, the new Military Mobility covers the period 2022-2026 and will be financed through the Connecting Europe Facility (funding dual-use transport infrastructure projects), and the European Defence Fund (supporting the development of interoperable logistical and digital systems).
