Abstract

Inter-agency cooperation is more common in theory, rather than in practice. Friction, rivalries and the competition for resources are a fundamental part of the planning process. Response requires cooperation between diff erent people from diff erent organizations. Bureaucracy will always exist in the sector of safety and security in many states, and its existence creates certain diffi culties for the establishment of a response structure before or during major events. People who are working together, but come from diff erent sectors, build better working relationships, as well as mutual trust. They likewise exchange knowledge between each other. In an eff ort for the more eff ective prevention of the eff ects of CBRN and environmental threats that aff ect public health in the Republic of Macedonia, as well as a form of deterring unwanted aftermaths, governmental bodies have become aware of the need for greater cooperation in inter-agency relationships. An inclusion of diff erent sectors is the key of the synergy of capacity and resource allocation. However, there is a dilemma regarding the coordinating bodies established for the same purpose. Using a diff erent approach or čtreatment for an aspect of this issue creates confusion and dilution of the responsibility of the departments that contribute to the burden of decision- making, thus contributing to the shortcomings and inconsistencies of the planned response. The main aim of inter-agency planning and coordination is to improve compatibility, synchronization and coherency in the community.
