Chapter 1: NATO Logistics

Related Functions

118. Although Host Nation Support (HNS) and Civil Emergency Planning (CEP) are not logistic functions, they are nevertheless closely related to logistics and impact on logistic planning. The availability of HNS offsets requirements for organic military support and thereby reduces the size and scope of the combat service support force that must be committed to an operation. CEP does as well, to some extent, and also facilitates the accomplishment of the mission by making resources from the civil sector available to the military, particularly in the area of deployments (see Chapters 11 and 12).
