smart defence and economic austerity
SMART DEFENCE AND ECONOMIC AUSTERITY
  • Most European defence budgets have been cut less deeply than other sectors of governments spending in 2010-2011(Alliance commitments, contractual obligations, industrial concerns)
  • Not sustainable over 2011-2016: fiscal deficits and debt management will lead to further cuts in force levels, capabilities, readiness and delayed procurement
  • Further pressure on defence expenditure reductions in the USA, UK and Germany

smart defence and economic austerity1
SMART DEFENCE AND ECONOMIC AUSTERITY
  • UK, France and Germany are crucial for NATO Europe: 65% of all NATO Europe Defence Expenditure, 88% of Research and Technology
  • USA projections for significant reductions through 2016 (Secretary Gates reduced the rate of increase in defence spending): the Obama Plans for deficit reductions indicate at least $400 billion cuts over 12 years (with current budgetary negotiations threatening to trigger an overall reduction of some

$1 trillion)

  • 2001: USA around 50% of NATO defence expenditure: 2011, USA approximately 75%

what is smart defence
WHAT IS SMART DEFENCE?
  • Ensuring greater security for less money by working together with more flexibility
  • Nations to pool and share capabilities, to set the right priorities and to better co-ordinate efforts
  • Reduce bureaucracy and slim down structures
  • Invest in Science and Technology and create greater coherence within Europe with multinational projects and closer links with the private sector
  • NATO and EU intensification of practical cooperation (21 common states)

security and the effects of budgetary constraints
SECURITY AND THE EFFECTS OF BUDGETARY CONSTRAINTS
    • European Allies must resist the temptation to disinvest too much in defence and allow transatlantic defence spending gap to widen any further
  • For Taxpayers, in order to obtain more security for the money invested in NATO capabilities, there is the need for continuing reform
  • The new NATO Strategic concept is an action plan: more effective, more engaged and more efficient

SMART DEFENCE AND ECONOMIC AUSTERITY
  • NATO Secretary General: “Without proper investments, we run the risk of a Europe that is divided, weaker and increasingly adrift from the United States”
  • “The financial crisis requires Smart Defence which ultimately promotes more coherence and effectiveness in defence spending in member states”

SECURITY AND THE EFFECTS OF BUDGETARY CONSTRAINTS

At present, all Allies have to cope with the serious effects of the economic crisis and cuts are inevitable
