Partnership for Peace
Partnership for Peace (PFP) is a NATO project founded in 1994, aimed at increasing 'the participants ability to act in concert. Through various mechanisms it helps Partner countries prepare to operate jointly with NATO forces'. 
Also, 'By assisting participants with reforms, the PFP helps them build a solid democratic environment, maintain political stability and improve security.' There is a 'Partnership for Peace Trust Fund', which 'was established in September 2000 to assist NATO partner countries in the safe destruction of stockpiled anti-personnel mines and other munitions.', and has '4.2 million USD to destroy over 2 million mines and other munitions in partner countries.'
It is seen as the first step in NATO membership - and three countries have gone on to become full members. Effectively every European country not in NATO is a member - even traditionally neutral countries like Switzerland.
