On 7 June 2017 the European Union presented its new strategy for resilience building, aiming to move from crisis containment to a more structural and long-term approach to global challenges. It puts a particular emphasis on anticipation, prevention and preparedness.

The EU had over the past few years established an ambitious and transformative agenda for its external action. These included the foreign and security policy aimed set out in the EU Global Strategy, international development and humanitarian goals agreed under the UN's Agenda 2030, and commitments under the Paris Climate accord.
