Ukraine

Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region is one of the most heavily industrialised areas on Earth. With a 200 year history of coal mining and heavy industry, the conflict there has already led to widespread groundwater contamination from flooded mines, while the ongoing fighting risks triggering a chemical emergency with a number of sensitive facilities close to the line of contact. With political will, dialogue over common environmental threats could be a source of cooperation between parties.
