Background

The world is increasingly faced with challenges related to climate change adaptation and environmental degradation. Many parts of the world experience problems with access to safe drinking water, access to agricultural land, and consequences of increasing urbanization. In Denmark, we have solid experience in dealing with challenges related to soil contamination and remediation.
