The Defense Planning
Samin VossoughiRad &
NATO’s essential and enduring purpose is to safeguard the
freedom and security of all its members by political and
military means. Collective defense is at the heart of the
Alliance and creates a spirit of solidarity and cohesion
among its members
Defence planning in the Alliance is a crucial tool
which enables member countries to benefit
from the political, military and resource
advantages of working together.
During the Cold War, NATO focused on collective defense and the protection
of its members from potential threats emanating from the Soviet Union.
With the collapse of the Soviet Union, along with the rise of non-state
actors affecting international security, many new security threats emerged.
NATO now focuses on countering these threats by utilizing collective
defense, managing crisis situations and encouraging cooperative security, as
outlined in the 2010 Strategic Concept.
The aim of NATO defence planning is to provide a framework within
which national and Alliance defence planning activities can be
harmonized to meet agreed targets in the most effective way.
It aims to facilitate the timely identification, development and
delivery of the necessary range of forces - forces that are
interoperable and adequately prepared, equipped, trained and
supported - as well as the associated military and non-military
capabilities to undertake the Alliance’s full spectrum of missions
EVOLUTIONOF DEFENCE PLANNING
WITHIN NATO: Article 5 operations and
Non-article 5 operations and force generation
THE NATO DEFENCE PLANNING
PROCESS: The defence planning process prevents the
renationalization of defence policies, while at the same time
recognizing national sovereignty.
The NDPP consists of five steps
Step 1 - Establish political guidance
Step 2 - Determine requirements
Step 3 - Apportion requirements and
Step 4 - Facilitate Implementation
Step 5 - Review results
Defence planning encompasses several planning domains: force,
resource, armaments, logistics, nuclear, C3 (consultation,
command and control), civil emergency planning, air defence, air
traffic management, standardization, intelligence, medical
support and research and technology.
The NDPP has introduced a new approach to defence planning
and operates within the new NATO committee structure.
The Defence Policy and Planning Committee (DPPC) is the central
body that oversees the work of NATO bodies and committees
responsible for the planning domains.
