Abstract:

This paper provides a compilation of the environmental trends expected to most significantly influence U.S. Army mission and environmental program management in this decade, and beyond. This document reflects information gathered in mid-1991. It is a statement of observed trends with brief discussions to show relevance to the Army, sometimes stated explicitly and sometimes conveyed implicitly. It does not forecast or recommend future action. The purpose is to bring widely distributed, fragmentary information together in one ready reference. Many of the 41 trends discussed can be consolidated in various combinations to obtain vastly richer insights than possible by looking at them individually. They are deliberately presented separately in order to not foreclose discussion on other possible insights and uses of the information.
