After its success during NCT Europe 2017, the workshop on “Non-conventional warfare in Syria” will come to Washington DC. The workshop offers the audience the opportunity to critically assess the use of chemical weapons and IED during the ongoing civil conflict and discuss what can the USA learn from the conflict to improve response and preparedness for CBRNe emergencies. Among others, Raed Saleh, Chief of the Syrian White Helmets, will share his experience in Syrian Civil Defense and Dr. Houssam Alnahhas, nominated by the National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces, will share his expertise in developing medical preparedness and response protocols in case of chemical attacks. 

 The open and roundtable format of this workshop stimulates interactive knowledge sharing within a trusted environment.
