Land Recovery and Man-Made Risks: A Perspective from the EU Accession Countries
The recovery of land polluted by industrial spoil, military activities and waste is of particular importance to the countries of eastern Europe, emerging as they are from a period in which these topics received less attention than in the West. While the detailed situations vary from county to country among the EU accession and pre-accession states, many of the underlying problems related to land recovery are common to all of them, and there is therefore great opportunity for mutual benefit by a meaningful exchange of information on problems, methodologies to tackle them, and the means of prioritizing, monitoring and financial solutions to them. This paper presents the results of a workshop held in Vienna in November 1998 to study the present situation in the EU accession countries, by describing the situation in the various countries and outlining the conclusions and recommendations of the workshop.
