Industrial hazardous waste in the Mediterranean countries

Year: 2013 Author: GRID-Arendal
Description:
Industry is frequently located along the region’s coasts in areas with high population density, sometimes within urban centres, and often in close proximity to other economic activities like agriculture and tourism. This means that pressures brought by industry to coastal and marine environments add to and interact with other types of pressures. The environmental pressures on the Mediterranean coastal marine environment generated by this broad range of industrial activities are multiple and varied, including the use of territory and natural resources (both marine and non-marine), the generation of waste and the release of pollutants into the atmosphere and water bodies.
