Abstract : International environmental issues can lead to instability and conflict that may threaten U.S. security interests and result in the commitment of U.S. forces. Such chronic, unresolved environment issues can be found in such critical regions as the former Soviet Union, Africa, Latin Amereica, and the Middle East. A strategy to implement a proactive policy of using DOD assets to mitigate environmental issues that could lead to instability has not yet been formulated. A panel on Environment Security at the Fifth Senior Environmental Leadership Conference defined DOD's environmental security role and made recommendations on key policy issues. This monograph provides a report of the panel's conclusions and recommendations. Environmental security, Political instability, Regional conflict, Global engagements, Environment.
