This study has

1. Determined a methodology for evaluating the risks and capital value that should be allocated to a range of sovereign hazards.

2. Developed a counterfactual hypothesis and tested it against the range of soveriegn hazards.

3. Determined that the counterfactual is a superior option to the existant force.

4. Produced recommendations based on the outcome of this thought-experiment.

We must conclude that:

1. The existant force is not designed to meet the full range of (all-hazards) sovereign risks

2. That the existant force either should be designed to meet these risksĀ or be considerably reduced in size in line with the methodology.

3 There is considerable scope for reorganisation of the existent force to meet these requirements more efficiently

4. Forward planning for a post-2025 force should take into consideration this study.
