Conflicts and disasters - potential powder kegs (landmines and other explosives)

Year: 2006 Author: Emmanuelle Bournay, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
The planet is scattered with hazardous or explosive leftovers from a succession of technical breakthroughs – be they military or industrial – just waiting to be washed away by a flood or mudslide or carried off by a hurricane. If disaster strikes these “powder kegs” multiply the danger to people and the environment (posing a particularly acute threat to already scarce water resources).
