In close cooperation between NATO HQ International Staff, International Military Staff, the Strategic Commands, and the National Representatives, the NATO Resource Conference 2017 will be held from 8-9 March 2017 in Reykjavik, ICELAND.
The theme of the conference is "Resourcing NATO's Long term Adaptation".
This event will provide a unique opportunity for key national decision makers across all resource areas, to obtain valuable insight in work that is planned for and ongoing within the NATO Resource Communities. It will also provide an excellent opportunity for an exchange of views, clarification of positions and identification of challenges and risk that may lay ahead.
These exchanges will enable all participants to increase their awareness, obtain better understanding and to express their views, ideas and options to allow for those to be taken into consideration during future deliberations on these, whether at national level, within NATO HQ or at Command level.
The NATO Resource Conference is a recurring event that takes place every 18 months and aims at gathering decision makers from the NATO Nations capitals and their representatives in Brussels to enhance understanding and directions on how to maximize the use of resources in order to satisfy requirements from the Military Commanders in countering threats (both present and future) and seek ways in obtaining the necessary capabilities.
After the Warsaw Summit, the Heads of States and Government have endorsed the path of Adaptation of the Alliance to counter threats to our east and south, while safeguarding the protection of our populations, enhancing consultation and cooperation and partnerships.
A central thread throughout the conference will be an integrated approach to decision making taking into account all resources, their characteristics, their strength and weaknesses and how we best can utilized these in a manner that will create synergies, and enable us to maintain, enhance and obtain those capabilities required for todays and tomorrows security environment, and securing the success of NATO's long term adaptation.
