Short description: The members of the COMMON FORUM and NICOLE share a commitment towards responsible contaminated land management. Their different backgrounds lead to a diversity of perspectives on how best to manage contaminated land. The COMMON FORUM members are by definition very involved in building and structuring the legislative framework, whereas the NICOLE members are putting it into practise in their daily work. In order to improve insight in each others perspectives and, with that, improve mutual understanding, the two networks agreed to have a joint workshop. The objective of this workshop was to review recent European legislative and policy developments affecting contaminated land management and examine their practical effects on problem and site management in EU Member States.
