Lessons Learned Quarterly Report, September 2006

Welcome to the 48th quarterly report on lessons learned in the NEPA process. We remember Lynton Caldwell, who promoted a vision of productive harmony – a balance of the interests of the environment and human society. The NEPA process remains a useful tool for pursuing that vision by integrating environmental analysis into the decisionmaking process. With this issue, we have completed 12 years of LLQR, with an emphasis on continuous improvement. As always, we welcome your suggestions.
