By Aaron Humes: The final planning meeting is underway in Belmopan for the annual multi-national and multi-domain defense and security exercise known as Tradewinds, which brings together forces from the Caribbean, North and Central America, and Europe.

Belize and Mexico are designated co-hosts for the 2022 exercise scheduled for May 7 to 21. Belize, hosting for the fifth time, will host land activities while Mexico, co-hosting for the first time since the inaugural exercise in 1984, will host naval activities.

The program, sponsored by U.S. Armed Forces Southern Command (SOUTHCOM), brings together regional defense forces to hone their skills in coordinated responses to land, air, sea, and cybersecurity scenarios.

Other invited participants, numbering up to 1,500, including multiple Caribbean countries as well as Brazil, Canada, Bermuda, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, France, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. U.S. participants will include Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy, Coast Guard, and special operations personnel as well as National Guard forces from Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and the District of Columbia.

The exercise objectives include expanding the region’s capacity to mitigate, plan for, and respond to crises; strengthening partnerships; increasing readiness; and promoting human rights and adherence to internationally recognized laws and agreements.

Exercise activities will focus on interoperability, riverine operations, maritime security, air operations, ground operations, cyber defense, dive operations, medical operations, and the integration of women in peace and security missions.
