Abstract:

Strategic Sustainability Assessment SSA is a long-term project sponsored by the Army Environmental Policy Institute AEPI, which seeks to provide a fact-based visualization of trends and issues that allows the Army to project the future in terms of the issues critical to sustainability. SSA will produce a variety of models and research tools that will provide strategic analyses in the form of ongoing, regular studies and reports that focus on specific regions or issues, and that help develop implementation plans and concepts for the Army Strategy for the Environment. This initial stage of research defined and conducted specific analyses of key forces, outcomes, and trends related to the SSA as it applies to Army installations using the 20- to 30-year time horizon. This work used a combination of forecasting and backcasting methods to investigate how installations in the selected focus region can overcome specific encroachment concerns and begin to develop sustainable management plans.
