REDUCING ENVIRONMENTAL RISK THROUGH STRENGTHENING OF MANAGEMENT OF HAZARDOUS WASTE FROM INDUSTRIAL, AGRICULTURAL AND MILITARY ACTIVITIES IN THE WIDER EUROPE

Objective

Risks related to hazardous waste are among the most important threats for populations at large. Moreover, strategies, policies and legislation lead to diversity of legal frameworks for their management in the Wider Europe. The main goal of the project is t o reduce environmental risk through the provision of a sound base for reinforcing legal mechanisms and instruments on international, national, regional and local levels for environmental risk management of hazardous waste resulting of industrial, agricultu ral and military activities and to develop a national focal point network leading to dissemination and adequate follow up. This project is intended as a concerted effort of existing Network representatives in France, Lithuania, Malta, FYROM,Serbia Monteneg ro, Armenia,Azerbaijan, Moldova, Ukraine and Russia to create a common basis towards a harmonised policy in the domain of hazardous waste management. Preliminary work has been done by this Network concerning a comparative analysis of the legislation on ri sk management in the partner countries. This project deals with the Specific Programs objectives in the way that the planned activities implement a multilateral coordination, associating three sub-regional areas of the Wider Europe. This cooperation is als o transversal and integrated, taking into account the interdependence of hazardous waste, across borders. Moreover, final recommendations should help future elaboration of regulating mechanisms and instruments harmonized at the Wider Europe level and devel opment of innovative R&D areas, to reduce the impacts downstream and also the production upstream. To achieve the objectives, the workplan leads up to undertake chronologically: compilation of databases of national legislation and standards on hazardou s waste management, evaluation of sub-regional database characteristics, comparative analysis with EU regulations, recommendations and dissemination at the three sub-regional levels.
