NHQSa has the primary mission of assisting the authorities of Bosnia and Herzegovina with reforms and commitments related to the Partnership for Peace, the secondary mission of providing logistic and other support to the European Union Force in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and certain authorities and responsibilities under General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina (GFAP, sometimes referred to as the Dayton Peace Agreement or Dayton Accords).
NATO Headquarters Sarajevo has a specific role: to advise and assist all institutions on defence and security sector reform and NATO Partnership for Peace (PfP) activities.
In the area of defence and security sector reform, our aim is to support the development of the Ministry of Defence and the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina and to enable them to fulfil their missions and tasks. This includes the broad systemic reforms aimed at improving working practices, functionality and efficiency.
In the area of NATO PfP activities, our aim is to help Bosnia and Herzegovina meet the commitments that they have chosen to make within PfP. A major area of work is in increasing interoperability with NATO member and partner forces, as well as developing capabilities that can be used at home and in operations abroad.
Our priorities are based upon the reforms and priorities that have been set by the institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina. We are here to help Bosnia and Herzegovina achieve these goals.
