About the product

The world is just beginning to grapple with the full implications of making military-related resources serve non-military purposes. This publication examines the unique potential of worldwide military establishments to augment the civilian capabilities of the international community in meeting the environmental challenge. It concentrates mainly on the possible environmental uses through reorientation, redeployment or redirection of resources currently used by the military or those which may be released through arms reduction.
