Introduction -- The context for environmental considerations in contingency operations -- Experience with environmental considerations in contingency operations -- Analysis of army operational experience -- Findings and recommendations -- Appendixes: A. Domestic and international law in army contingency operations -- B. The importance of environmental conditions to the local populace in Iraq -- C. Case studies of operational experiences. This study assesses whether Army policy, doctrine, and guidance adequately address environmental activities in post-conflict phases of contingencies. A review of policy, doctrine, operational experience, and documentation, as well as interviews with Army personnel, indicates that environmental concerns can have significant impacts. Recommendations are made for improving the Army's approach to environmental issues in contingency operations.
