This volume contains the informal papers used in preparation of the final report, Alternative Futures for Environmental Policy Planning: 1975-2000 (PB-248 796). These working papers are provided for use by the client in its development of a futures planning capability. These are not part of the formal report and are solely intended for use as informal documents to supplement the final report. This volume consists of three major sections: Section I: An extended discussion of the alternative futures methodology which was described only briefly in the final report. Section II: A review of key trend areas which were critical in developing a plausible range of alternative futures scenarios (a summary of each of these is presented in the final report). Section III: A review of selected futures literature which provided a multi-dimensional source of competing perspectives which, in turn, aided us in putting some 'flesh' on the skeletal futures that were developed.
