Abstract:

Military resources have studied the nature of conflict in many situations for many years. Lessons learned about conflict precursors, forecasting and prevention should be made available through relevant channels to support the UNs change of emphasis from reaction to prevention. Alternative scenarios could be created about how military forces could be better deployed for prevention. Since environmental issues are increasingly recognized as a contributing cause of future conflicts, the military might consider increasing cooperation with environmental forecasting organizations in order to improve its capacity to anticipate and prevent conflicts.
