Short description: This article contains a brief overview and highlights from two recent World Bank publications: one dealing with the development of a contaminated site program in low and middle income countries, and the second describing the alternatives available for financing the remediation and redevelopment of contaminated sites. The first report (1) provides a description of the various policy, legislative, regulatory, and implementation options for creating such a program (derived from a review of contaminated site programs in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia) and (2) suggests steps in developing a management plan for development of such a program. The second publication reviews established and emerging financing mechanisms for contaminated site clean-up and outlines the strengths and challenges of each based on the experiences of several countries.
