THREATS AND CHALLENGES TO

MARITIME SECURITY 2020

FOREWORD

1 March 1999

This document is a broad overview of the forces, events, and activities that may shape the maritime security environment of the next two decades. It is primarily intended as an information tool for use by policy makers, strategic planners, integrated systems analysts, and force structure planners. It has been produced largely in support of the goals, objectives and responsibilities of the Department of Transportation and the United States Coast Guard. However, we believe it may also be of value to the Department of Defense, Department of the Navy, and other government organizations having responsibilities or interest in maritime affairs or transnational issues.

The study has been co-produced by the Coast Guard Intelligence Coordination Center and the Office of Naval Intelligence. It draws upon extensive research and the expertise of the academic, scientific, and intelligence communities. It has been reviewed by the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency.

Please address any questions or comments regarding this study to the Coast Guard Intelligence Coordination Center.
