2010 was a busy year for us as we saw high levels of activity across our various business streams. There is a growing awareness of oil spills renewed by the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon incident; the response to this incident has been a watershed in our 25-year history. Interestingly, although the number of spills attended dropped in 2010, the scale and nature of the incidents enabled us to demonstrate an increasingly broad range of technical and management skills that maximised the value to our Members during a response. In the past year, we have operated in nearly 60 countries on almost every continent in the world, reflecting the global reach of our activities. To make greater headway for our business, we have also sought out and embraced opportunities to serve new markets as described in this report.

Environmental problems exacerbated by natural or man-made events can contribute to regional instability and conflict. Such disasters hinder economic progress, displace populations, and facilitate the growth of undesirable elements and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Failure to respond to these events in a coordinated, timely and effective manner impacts a government’s legitimacy and its ability to govern and function. For these reasons environmental security initiatives are key security cooperation vehicles for the United States Central Command (USCENTCOM). Two Central Asia conferences established the relationships that allowed access to the bases required to fight the war against terrorism. In the Arabian Gulf region environmental security efforts complement USCENTCOM’s Cooperative Defense Initiative (CDI) activities and offer a valuable venue for broadening regional security cooperation.

Many organizations treat a crisis as a series of tactical issues affecting operational silos, rather than reviewing the needs of the crisis response at the organizational and strategic level. Trying to fit a crisis response into existing organizational boundaries and operations can be like hammering a square peg into a round hole. Organizations need a strategic view of crisis management that encompasses the whole enterprise. The authors of this white paper examine how to create that strategic view while reducing threats and deriving value from the distributed nature of the organization.

In response to Bruce Nussbaum's bizzare, and unfortunate antidesign campaign in 2007 entitled "Are Designers the Enemy of Design?" NextD Journal invited its global subscribers to cocreate a response. With the graduate design school leaders, professional design association leaders, and design magazine leaders all missing in action it was not the design "communities" finest hour. Many chose to lay under the Nussbaum bus. NextD did not. Organized rapidly with no budget by the NextD Journal team Beautiful Diversion became the only organized response to Nussbaum's loopy and unconstructive antidesign campaign. Beautiful Diversion became a legendary success that continues to interest our readers.
