About this book

Protecting environmental quality while pursuing economic development poses a particularly difficult challenge to the countries of Eastern and Central Europe, where political and economic systems are changing rapidly following decades of environmental neglect and economic mismanagement. This challenge also confronts advanced industrial nations as they approach difficult decisions about priorities and procedures for providing financial assistance to the region. In order to identify workable solutions this book investigates one of the leading environmental problems that these countries now face and examines the link between economic restructuring and environmental improvement. The results make for surprising reading. For example it is claimed that the area's pollutions problems may have been overstated.
