Long description: This Study documents the progress made regarding the management of CMS in 21 countries. The countries were selected on the basis of certain criteria. One of the most important criteria was the question of comparability, i.e. is the country selected converting military properties into civil properties after the withdrawal of foreign troops too and facing the same urgency to manage its CMS in connection with this conversion as Germany. Especially the countries in Central and Eastern Europe are currently facing the same problem. Beyond this, those countries were selected, where it was likely that a clear and dedicated concept for the registration, investigation, assessment and remediation of CMS would exist. The following countries are subject of this Study: NATO Member States in Europe:Belgium, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Norway, United Kingdom, NATO Member States outside Europe: Canada, United States of America (USA), NATO associates in Central and Eastern Europe: Belorussia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland,- Russian Federation, Slovakia, Ukraine, Neutral States: Australia, Austria, Sweden.
