The Environmental Situation in Albania and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Kosovo) - A Short Overview

01-07-2001

The environmental situation in the countries of Albania and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia is not the best. There are many reasons for this, but one of the most important is poor environmental management, or even the lack of it. Air and water pollution problems are severe, as is also soil degradation and the impact of poor waste management. The challenge for the international community now is to ensure that environmental protection and management in these countries become at least as satisfactory as in states where environmental protection and management do not cause severe problems.
