Parliamentary Assembly
Text adopted by the Standing Committee, acting on behalf of the Assembly, on 12 November 2010 (see Doc. 12354, report of the Committee on the Environment, Agriculture and Local and Regional Affairs, rapporteur: Mr Toshev).
1. The Parliamentary Assembly, referring to its Resolution 1775 (2010) on military waste and the environment, reiterates that military waste is a problem that is common to all European countries.
2. It consequently calls on member and observer states to take the necessary steps to set up interstate co-operation and to ensure greater transparency, particularly where the communication of information is concerned.
3. The Assembly also recommends that the Committee of Ministers draft a set of guidelines to encourage member and observer states to adopt and implement co-ordinated strategies on dealing with military waste, as called for in the aforementioned resolution.
