Given growing external pressures on Army installations, the U.S. Army asked RAND Arroyo Center to examine how external trends might affect Army installations out to the year 2025. The Army s Office of Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management OACSIM will use the study results to develop a strategic concept to shape the future of installations out to the year 2025, and to foster exploration and innovation that improves Soldier and Family Readiness at Army installations. This study analyzed a range of trends that are likely to impact installations from now out to 2025, including the areas of building design, climate change, energy, information technologies, loss of biodiversity, societal trends, sustainable agriculture, sustainable communities, transportation, urbanization and sprawling communities, and water scarcity. This research was sponsored by OACSIM and was conducted in RAND Arroyo Center s Military Logistics Program. RAND Arroyo Center, part of the RAND Corporation, is a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the United States Army. This report should be of interest to Army and Department of Defense staff involved in installation planning and management, including issues of environment, infrastructure investments, community, and quality of life. It should also be of interest to other federal agencies, state and local governments, nongovernmental organizations, and businesses that interact with Army installations, and to those that have more general interests in the relevant trend categories that we examine in this report.
