The mandatory theme will be the main topic dealt with during the cycle’s Commanders’ Conference, albeit its treatment and analysis will take place during the events of the cycle.
For each cycle, the Commanders in the previous Commanders Conference will establish a theme that acts as a focus for orienting the
process of analysis, debate and exchange of ideas that goes on in the different events of the organization.
The mandatory theme approved by the Commanders aims at deeply and flexibly discriminating which matters and topics of common interest are to be included in the input process of the organization during the cycle.
The mandatory theme for the XXX Cycle is:
"CAA and its contribution to Peacekeeping Operations (in compliance of a UN mandate) and Disaster Relief Operations through the creation and use of mechanisms and procedures designed to improve the collective capacities and interoperability of their members."
