During the transition to more advanced energy and environmental technologies, international flexibility, cooperation, and partnering in many areas, including defense, intelligence, nonproliferation, public policy, and science and technology investment, will be critical to avoiding disruptions in energy supplies. Flexibility, cooperation, and partnering will also be necessary to support international economic and political security, improve the health and well-being of the developing world, and provide a foundation for global and regional economic prosperity and environmental sustainability.
