For the first time, jets assigned to NATO’s Air Policing mission are flying out of Latvia. A detachment of German Air Force Eurofighter Typhoons are currently based at Lielvarde Air Base, where they’re tasked with ensuring the safety and security of the airspace over and around Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. NATO aircraft assigned to the Baltic Air Policing mission regularly intercept Russian aircraft when they don’t use transponders to identify themselves or fail to respond to hails from air traffic controllers, meaning they appear on radar simply as an unidentified contact. The Baltic Air Policing mission is led from Šiauliai Air Base in Lithuania, where the Spanish and Portuguese Air Forces currently have fighters deployed. An additional nation usually covers the Baltic Sea from Ämari Air Base in Estonia, but fighters are temporarily stationed in Latvia while the Estonian Air Force improves the runway. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ SUBSCRIBE to this channel https://bit.ly/NATOsubscribe SUBSCRIBE to NATO News https://bit.ly/NATONewsSubscribe SUBSCRIBE to NATO History https://bit.ly/NATOHistorySubscribe Connect with NATO online: Visit the Official NATO Homepage: https://bit.ly/NATOhomepage Receive NATO updates via email: https://bit.ly/NATOemails Find NATO on FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/NATOfacebook Follow @NATO on TWITTER: https://bit.ly/NATOtwitter Follow NATO on Instagram: https://bit.ly/NATOinstagram Find NATO on LinkedIn: https://bit.ly/NATOlinkedin Find NATO on Flickr: https://bit.ly/NATOflickr #NATO #OTAN #SecuringTheSkies

What's in the kit of a Latvian special forces’ dog handling team? Rejs is a Belgian Malinois currently serving with the Latvian army’s Special Operations Forces. During missions, as a combat assault canine, Rejs helps Latvian commandos by sniffing out explosive traps, chasing down high-value targets and using his incredible speed and agility to get the jump on foes. Rejs requires a lot of kit to do his job, which is carried by his handler, a Latvian Special Forces operator. In this piece, we get to see the items the dog handling team carries in their backpack – from a dog bowl to a muzzle. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ SUBSCRIBE to this channel https://bit.ly/NATOsubscribe SUBSCRIBE to NATO News https://bit.ly/NATONewsSubscribe SUBSCRIBE to NATO History https://bit.ly/NATOHistorySubscribe Connect with NATO online: Visit the Official NATO Homepage: https://bit.ly/NATOhomepage Receive NATO updates via email: https://bit.ly/NATOemails Find NATO on FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/NATOfacebook Follow @NATO on TWITTER: https://bit.ly/NATOtwitter Follow NATO on Instagram: https://bit.ly/NATOinstagram Find NATO on LinkedIn: https://bit.ly/NATOlinkedin Find NATO on Flickr: https://bit.ly/NATOflickr #NATO #OTAN #WeAreNATO

Energy Cities
What is it like to be the young director of a capital city’s energy agency? I found some answers when talking with Janiks Ikaunieks. Janis leads the Riga Energy Agency in Latvia since 2 years. He told us how his agency is tackling the city’s challenges, which spots help him relax and why innovation is not always the first thing to do. Riga is known for its wooden buildings, art nouveau architecture and medieval Old Town. But the city leaders look towards the future: Riga is one of 10 pilot cities who are developing and implementing pathways and scenarios towards climate neutrality within the EUCityCalc project. The EUCityCalc project supports cities in data-driven decision-making: With funding from the EU Horizon 2020 program, the project will release the European City Calculator webtool. This is an open-source instrument with which cities can plan their measures to bring CO2 emissions down to zero.

4 May 2023
SME Europe
Latvia has been considered as one of the EU’s most advantageous hubs for foreign investment. Together with liberal economic policies and a developed infrastructure, Latvia plays a major role in making the Baltic region an important investment centre. Nevertheless, investors still point towards problems with the quality of laws that govern entrepreneurship as well as stability of the financial sector and communication with policy-makers. Geographical proximity to Russian Federation, after its aggressive invasion of Ukraine, is also perceived as higher risk and requires decisive political engagement. What are the prospects for Latvia’s greater economic competitiveness and of the Baltic region as a whole? What is needed for Latvia to continue inspire investors? These questions will be discussed during the upcoming virtual episode of our three-part Baltic debates collection, that you're most welcome to join.

The mountainous region of Western Macedonia in #Greece used to supply more than 50% of the country's total energy production, but all lignite mines are scheduled to close by 2028, which could lead to unemployment and a decrease in the area's economy. One possible new source of revenue is #smartfarming and clean energy production. In this video, we meet Yannis Mpisiritsas, a farmer from Western Macedonia who maintains a farm with animal husbandry and an adjacent #biogasplant. His challenge, however, is that the liquid residues from the biogas plant, #digestate, cannot be taken directly to the field as #fertilizer because it can be harmful to #soilhealth. For such a situation, the European research project NOMAD has developed a mobile solution for decentralized biogas plants to process the digestate into high-quality organic #biofertiliser and remove #antibiotics from the residual water, which is then safe for irrigation.

One of Lithuania’s largest military exercises, Iron Wolf, saw nine NATO Allies – Belgium, Czechia, Germany, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, the United Kingdom and the United States – gather for intense training at Pabrade Training Ground, Lithuania. The exercise, which involved more than 3,500 troops, and armoured vehicles including German Leopard 2 tanks, tested the ability of the Lithuanian Army’s Iron Wolf Brigade to carry out defensive operations and counter-attacks. NATO’s German-led multinational battlegroup participated, as did a US Army battalion assigned to Lithuania on a rotational basis. The exercise was also an opportunity for troops from various Allies to hone their skills and ability to work together, as well as testing their readiness to defend NATO’s eastern flank, if required. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬SUBSCRIBE to this channel http://bit.ly/NATOsubscribeSUBSCRIBE to NATO News http://bit.ly/NATONewsSubscribeSUBSCRIBE to NATO History http://bit.ly/NATOHistorySubscribeConnect with NATO online:Visit the Official NATO Homepage: http://bit.ly/NATOhomepageReceive NATO updates via email: http://bit.ly/NATOemailsFind NATO on FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/NATOfacebookFollow @NATO on TWITTER: http://bit.ly/NATOtwitterFollow NATO on Instagram: http://bit.ly/NATOinstagramFind NATO on LinkedIn: http://bit.ly/NATOlinkedinFind NATO on Flickr: http://bit.ly/NATOflickr#NATO #WeAreNATO #Lithuania

🇺🇸 US Army deploys HIMARS rocket artillery system to Latvia 🇱🇻

The US Army deployed advanced rocket artillery to Latvia as part of a multinational exercise. The M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, or HIMARS, arrived in Latvia on 26 September to participate in Exercise Silver Arrow 22. The launchers were flown from Germany to Latvia by US Air Force MC-130J Commando II transport aircraft based in the United Kingdom. Exercise Silver Arrow 22 ran from 19 to 30 September 2022. The HIMARS system gives NATO the ability to conduct powerful long-range precision strikes, and the US Army regularly deploys the system to the Baltics to train alongside NATO Allies. In recent years, US Special Operations Command Europe (US SOCEUR) has practised rapidly deploying the system via the UK-based Commando II transports. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬SUBSCRIBE to this channel http://bit.ly/NATOsubscribeSUBSCRIBE to NATO News http://bit.ly/NATONewsSubscribeSUBSCRIBE to NATO History http://bit.ly/NATOHistorySubscribeConnect with NATO online:Visit the Official NATO Homepage: http://bit.ly/NATOhomepageReceive NATO updates via email: http://bit.ly/NATOemailsFind NATO on FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/NATOfacebookFollow @NATO on TWITTER: http://bit.ly/NATOtwitterFollow NATO on Instagram: http://bit.ly/NATOinstagramFind NATO on LinkedIn: http://bit.ly/NATOlinkedinFind NATO on Flickr: http://bit.ly/NATOflickr#NATO #OTAN #himars 🏷 ukraine, m142 himars live-fire, m142 himars live-fire exercise

During the exercise, Lithuanian soldiers worked shoulder-to-shoulder with their NATO Allies. A quick stop for a snack between operations, and then back to work! They pressed forward while Leopard 2 tanks from Germany provided cover. It isn’t easy, but hey – you don’t become an Iron Wolf by staying home. Exercise Iron Wolf involved more than 3,500 troops from nine NATO Allies.

As part of the measures to reinforce the eastern part of the Alliance, the Danish Armed Forces have deployed a battalion along with other units in Latvia. With approximately 750 soldiers, the Danish soldiers are helping to reinforce the Baltic region after Russia’s unjustified and brutal invasion of Ukraine. These actions demonstrate Allies’ solidarity, determination and ability to defend Alliance territory and populations. The battalion is formed by the Danish Army’s 1st Brigade and is mainly composed of the 1st Hussars of the Guard Hussars Regiment, along with other units. The Danish forces have been deployed alongside troops from other NATO member countries at Ādaži Military Base since April 2022 and are integrated into the Latvian Mechanised Infantry Brigade. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬SUBSCRIBE to this channel http://bit.ly/NATOsubscribeSUBSCRIBE to NATO News http://bit.ly/NATONewsSubscribeSUBSCRIBE to NATO History http://bit.ly/NATOHistorySubscribeConnect with NATO online:Visit the Official NATO Homepage: http://bit.ly/NATOhomepageReceive NATO updates via email: http://bit.ly/NATOemailsFind NATO on FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/NATOfacebookFollow @NATO on TWITTER: http://bit.ly/NATOtwitterFollow NATO on Instagram: http://bit.ly/NATOinstagramFind NATO on LinkedIn: http://bit.ly/NATOlinkedinFind NATO on Flickr: http://bit.ly/NATOflickr#NATO #Latvia #denmark 🏷 ādaži airfield cv90 cv90 mkiv anton dinsen-andersen

Ice jumping is a military exercise conducted by troops serving in cold weather conditions across NATO. It requires soldiers, in a controlled environment, to jump into a hole in an otherwise frozen lake so that, if it should happen during training or operations, the soldiers will have already experienced the shock and will know how to get themselves out safely. To give a layman’s perspective on the ice jump exercise, Jake Tupman, a video producer for NATO, tests it out. Hosted by the Latvian National Guard, many of whom will also jump, he goes out into the Latvian forests to see what it feels like to plunge into icy cold water ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬SUBSCRIBE to this channel http://bit.ly/NATOsubscribeSUBSCRIBE to NATO News http://bit.ly/NATONewsSubscribeSUBSCRIBE to NATO History http://bit.ly/NATOHistorySubscribeConnect with NATO online:Visit the Official NATO Homepage: http://bit.ly/NATOhomepageReceive NATO updates via email: http://bit.ly/NATOemailsFind NATO on FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/NATOfacebookFollow @NATO on TWITTER: http://bit.ly/NATOtwitterFollow NATO on Instagram: http://bit.ly/NATOinstagramFind NATO on LinkedIn: http://bit.ly/NATOlinkedinFind NATO on Flickr: http://bit.ly/NATOflickr#NATO #OTAN #WeAreNATO

The Project Development Services (PDS) financed by ELENA will provide support to the Alior Bank S.A. for the preparation andverification of energy audits and preparation of complex technicaldesign documentation for loan applicants under two different loanprogrammes offered by Alior. The technical assistance will also helpAlior build technical capacity in energy efficiency to provide soundadvice to potential energy efficiency loan applicants and to make thefinal beneficiaries (housing associations) aware of the benefits whenperforming deep energy efficiency refurbishments. The housing sector in the Baltics is characterized by poor maintenance and low energy performance, but has uniform construction types (soviet era 1960s-1990s). This presents an opportunity to develop much-needed standardised approaches to energy-saving retrofits. The Jelgava JNIP (Jelgava building maintenance company) ELENA program is enabling the city of Jelgava to accelerate retrofitting. JNIP is uniquely placed to build consensus amongst apartment owners for retrofitting and take advantage of economies of scale with simultaneous renovations of similar buildings. Thanks to ELENA, JNIP can hire external experts to train their project managers and prepare the construction sector for serial refurbishment solutions in their city. This approach will provide the blueprint for a vital uptake in energy-saving retrofits in all Baltic states.

TRACING THE CHANGES: LATE PALAEOLITHIC AND EARLY MESOLITHIC LITHIC PROJECTILE POINTS IN LATVIA
28 Mar 2021
European Association...
Projectile points, representing one of the most distinctive tool forms in lithic collections, can serve as an important diagnostic factor to determine the presence of a certain archaeological industry or culture in a region. Therefore, the goal of this paper is to present Late Palaeolithic and Early Mesolithic (11th – 9th millennium BC) lithic projectile points from present-day Latvia, focus-ing on both morphological and technological attributes as well as on dating problems.It is possible to divide flint projectile points from Latvia (67 in total) into four main types, all produced from non-local, high-qual-ity Cretaceous flint. Even though each type has its own specific characteristics, some of them share common technological attributes.The first two types – tanged and willow-leaf points – are associated with the banks of two major rivers, the Daugava and Lielupe, representing the Swiderian technological tradition (Salaspils Laukskola and Avotiņi sites). Both tanged and willow-leaf points were produced from the same blank type. Based on similar material in the Baltic region, the tanged type is assigned to the Late Palaeolithic, while the willow-leaf type is dated to the end of the Late Palaeolithic and beginning of the Mesolithic. However, due to the lack of datable material on sites, it is not possible to determine the exact time these points were in use in present-day Latvia. Two other tanged point types – long, regular and smaller forms – are the Pulli types and have been found as stray finds in the River Daugava basin and at Early Mesolithic sites in NE (Zvejnieki II) and SE (Kvapani II) Latvia, dated to the 9th millennium BC. The use of smaller, less regular tanged points continued even later in the Mesolithic. All the points from Latvia are analyzed in the context of all the Eastern Baltic traditions.

When invading the Rabia region, at the border with Syria, in 2014, Daesh destroyed all the bridged, water stations and irrigation systems. Fayed and Fares are amongst those who were hired to remove the debris and rubble from the clogged canals, so that water can flow again in the region. Thanks to the financial support of the EU through the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has been able to clear valuable farmland around the canals of undetonated ordinances, so farmers can go back to planting crops and grazing their livestock safely. With its cash-for-work component, FAO is helping increase households’ income by creating short-term employment opportunities for 1,250 vulnerable families.

The Boxer ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle) ambulance is an eight-wheeled multi-purpose vehicle used by the 13th Motorised Brigade of the Royal Netherlands Army as a battlefield ambulance. Its heavy armour and off-road capabilities make it ideally suited to evacuating casualties from the battlefield under heavy fire. The Boxer ATV is a battlefield ambulance and is not equipped to respond to urban or civilian incidents due to its size and weight. We spoke to Corporal Tim from the Royal Netherlands Army based in Lithuania as part of NATO’s enhanced Forward Presence Battlegroup.

European Geosciences...
Our planet faces its greatest challenge for millennia: us.There is now almost unanimous agreement that humans are having enormous impacts on the natural balance of our planet, with consequences that threaten our own existence and the survival of natural ecosystems alike. The need for drastic change in our behaviour is clear. And yet, the response from political leaders and people in general is weak. Why? Human actions are driven by many factors, but having a clear understanding of cause and effect is a dominant one. Arguably, this is where communication of scientific evidence has failed to inform opinion sufficiently to drive the actions that are necessary to mitigate the worst impacts on our planet’s future climate. This session highlights the challenges that exist in communicating climate science and demonstrate ways in which scientific research and evidence can be communicated in a way that is meaningful and persuasive to the public and policymakers alike. This session demonstrates the most effective ways to communicate issues relating to climate change which may seem abstract, distant or complex, in a way that makes them relatable.

María knew how her life was going to be when she married Juan, a Lieutenant in the Spanish Navy. When he embarked on board the Spanish Frigate “Alvaro de Bazán”, deployed with NATO Standing Naval Forces, it was about a fortnight before she was due to give birth. Fortunately, he was able to disembark and be present for the birth of Victoria, their third child. Even though she had to put her career on hold in order to take care of their children and adapt to this way of life, María feels rewarded because she believes that it allows her to see many places and gives her a chance to miss her husband when he is away. She also feels lucky to count on the support of the other spouses. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬SUBSCRIBE to this channel http://bit.ly/NATOsubscribeSUBSCRIBE to NATO News http://bit.ly/NATONewsSubscribeSUBSCRIBE to NATO History http://bit.ly/NATOHistorySubscribeConnect with NATO online:Visit the Official NATO Homepage: http://bit.ly/NATOhomepageReceive NATO updates via email: http://bit.ly/NATOemailsFind NATO on FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/NATOfacebookFollow @NATO on TWITTER: http://bit.ly/NATOtwitterFollow NATO on Instagram: http://bit.ly/NATOinstagramFind NATO on LinkedIn: http://bit.ly/NATOlinkedinFind NATO on Flickr: http://bit.ly/NATOflickr#NATO #OTAN #WeAreNATO
