Waste, chemicals and contaminated sites

The management of municipal and industrial waste, hazardous chemicals and contaminated sites has not been a priority for the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Protection and other ministries and institutions involved. The political and economic conditions during the transition have not been favourable for investment into waste management or the decontamination of sites, especially former Soviet military sites. This area requires financial resources, strong and well coordinated institutions, further research and an inventory of waste sites, including quantities of waste, hazardous chemicals and their composition.
