The dilemma between environmental protection and economic development is nowadays omnipresent. It certainly represents one of the main challenges facing Central European Countries (CECs) in their transition toward market economy. The book gives a comprehensive review of environmental issues in Central European Countries (Poland, Czechy and Slovaky, Hungary, Romania, ex-USSR and ex-Eastern Germany) and a look at possible problems-solving approaches.
