Short description: Extracts: CLARINET has been a successful EC project that has drawn on scientists and other experts from 16 countries in Europe to advance the state of the art in contaminated land management. A wide range of publications have been produced, which are available on it’s web site (www.clarinet.at), including: • Its overall findings: “Sustainable Management of, Contaminated Land: an Overview”. • Working Groups reports o Brownfields and Redevelopment of Urban Areas (WG1) o Review of Decision Support Tools for Contaminated Land Management and their use in Europe (WG2) o Contaminated Land and its Impact on Water Resources (WG3) o An Analysis of National and EU RTD Programmes related to sustainable Land and Groundwater Management (WG4) o Remediation of Contaminated Land. Technology Implementation in Europe - o State-of-the-Art (WG7) The RBLM concept and its relevance for sustainable management of soil and water resources are currently being discussed at a European and - in some cases – national level, for example, by the Common Forum and with regard to future EU regulations, such as the Water Framework Directive and possible “Daughter-Directive” on groundwater, the EU Soil Policy, the Environmental Liability Directive and FP6. CLARINET’s vision is to see a change in social and political attitudes away from a negative perception of contaminated land towards that of positive shared action to conserve and enhance the soil and water resources.
