In close cooperation between NATO HQ International Staff, International Military Staff, the Strategic Commands, and the National Representatives, the 5th NATO Resource Conference will be held on 15 and 16 October 2015 in Riga, Latvia.
This conference is midway between two Summits and as such 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 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 ability to make better informed decisions could be enhanced through collectively sharing knowledge, experience, ideas and views.
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.
