At the North Atlantic Council meeting, the Allies decided on the NATO budget for 2022. According to an official announcement, the budget will be reduced by €25 million to €1,849 million.

The civilian budget, with funding for civilian personnel, operating costs and civilian programme spending, has been raised to €289.1 million, an increase of 8.9 per cent compared to 2021. The military budget, for operating costs of headquarters, the NATO command structure and programmes, missions and operations around the world, decreases by three per cent to €1.56Bn.

The third funding pillar is the NATO Security Investment Programme (NSIP) for which a ceiling of €790 million has been set. The funds are to be used for major investments in construction projects and command and control systems.

All member states contribute to the budgets and the NSIP according to an agreed cost-sharing key based on gross national income.
