Off the Beach! – NGO Platform Report (2009)

Abstract

“The beaching method does not and cannot meet the existing international definition of safe and environmentally sound management – taking all practicable steps to ensure that hazardous wastes or other wastes are managed in a manner which will protect human health and the environment (Basel Convention art. 2.8). no amount of investment or improvement can ever overcome the inherent flaws of breaking toxic ships directly on a tidal beach.”
