National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC. Commission on Human Resources.
The Committee for Study of Environmental Manpower (CSEM), responsible for this report, was appointed by the Commission on Human Resources to review the literature in the field of environmental manpower and to make recommendations. The Committee involved experts from government, industry, environmental organizations, and the general public. In this report, the Committee concluded that a large-scale or general shortage of pollution control manpower was not presently apparent or likely to develop in the near future. However, the Committee did note that shortages will occur in selected, specialized occupations. Recommendations made by the Committee included upgrading the quality of the current environmental work force through supplemental training and improvements in the educational process. Detailed discussion and tabular information are in appendices supporting the report. (MA)
