Environmental Management in Czecho-Slovakia

Environmental protection is regarded as one of the major problems that Czecho-Slovakia must face. The effectiveness of environmental activities depends among other things on the implementation of various economic, legal, administrative, technical, and other instruments that can promote or hinder environmental protection. This chapter first introduces a brief survey of the state of the Czecho-Slovak environment. We then discuss in detail current legal and administrative aspects of environmental management in the country today.
