Since 2016, the focus for the exercise has shifted from field training exercises to emphasize the planning process, where structure, methods, experience-gathering and field work collaboration between partners in the region is vital. The implementation shall also take into consideration the action plans for climate adaption and the effect on the Barents Region. During 2019, Sweden, through MSB, are hosting the Barents Rescue and will test a new concept in the shape of an Event Week.
