1st RASR Workshop
5-7 May 2009, Zagreb, Croatia
At the September 2008 Adriatic Charter Chiefs of Defense Conference, a Chief of Defense suggested a regional approach to the common challenges of excess munitions disposal. With many national and international projects ongoing, a regional approach could improve efficiency and extend limited resources. Since 2006, ammunition stockpile explosions in Albania, Bulgaria, and Serbia have caused large numbers of casualties and significant damage, displacing many civilians.
