dc.description.abstractAbstract: If strategically sited, a contingency base (CB) can serve as a force multi-plier in relations between governments and civilians. Although both of the U.S. Army’s key doctrinal sources for CB planning and design clearly recognize that CBs are affected by host-nation populations and also affect those populations directly, neither source provides much concrete help to the planners who are expected to analyze those reciprocal impacts. Yet, while deployed in a foreign nation, U.S. military commanders and planners must be cognizant of how their actions can impact U.S. military operations for good or for ill. This work supports military planners tasked with selecting CB locations by presenting an assessment framework to conduct a scientifically supportable socioecological systems analysis of a CB’s use of a resource—in this case, potable water. The proposed assessment framework will enable the U.S. Army to consider the ramifications of siting CBs as part of military operations. Addressing data sources and analytical methodologies will be part of follow-on research efforts.en_US
