NATO Capability Roadmap Areas 

Addressing priority capability areas coherently, across the DOTMLPFI (doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel and facilities)  spectrum, from the short to the longer term is a new way of working for the Alliance and is intended to be achieved over time. Roadmaps should be seen an instrument of The NATO Defence Planning Process (NDPP) Step 4.  Consistently connected with the other steps, they will help the Alliance move away from the anecdotal “snapshots” of priorities presented periodically as an outcome of Summit or Ministerial meetings and provide an enduring tool allowing Allies to measure and report progress toward delivering on critical capabilities. This should improve NDPP effectiveness and help nations make effective defence investment choices as they implement the Defence Investment Pledge. Roadmaps aim at providing nations with a tool for comprehensive and coherent NDPP capability development in priority capability areas, from the short to the longer term, which can inform national decisions on defence investment.
