Environmental Issues in Areas Retaken from ISIL Mosul, Iraq: Rapid Scoping Mission July-August 2017 - Technical Note
United Nations Environment Programme

Technical Note from a scoping mission to Mosul, Iraq, to analyse the environmental impact of areas retaken from ISIL. During his visit to Iraq in May 2017, Erik Solheim responded positively to the government’s request for support in conducting an assessment of the environmental impacts in areas formerly occupied by ISIL (so-called Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, alias Daesh). The Head of UN Environment witnessed first-hand the devastating environmental impacts affecting the inhabitants of Qayarrah town, 60 kilometres south of Mosul, from oil wells deliberately set on fire. ISIL’s scorched earth tactics provide a dramatic illustration of how pollution from conflicts and deliberate sabotage and looting of industrial facilities and civil infrastructure can affect people’s health and livelihoods for decades, and impede reconstruction and peacebuilding efforts.

Environmental Audit of the Sites Impacted by the "Probo Koala" Toxic Waste Dumping in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire - Site 8: Agboville
United Nations Environment Programme

On 19 August 2006, the ship Probo Koala off-loaded 528 cubic meters of liquid wastes in the port of Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The material was transferred onto tanker trucks operated by a local contractor, and dumped in twelve different locations around the city. In June 2012, UN Environment received a formal request from the Government of Côte d’Ivoire to undertake an independent and scientific environmental audit of the sites that were impacted by the dumping of wastes of the Probo Koala.
The Government wished for UN Environment to determine whether the sites continued to pose risks for the environment or for public health, and to make recommendations about additional or corrective clean-up measures that would need to be carried out in case contamination was detected.

Environmental Baseline Study for the Proposed Relocationing of the UNSOA Logistics Base Mombasa, Kenya
United Nations Environment Programme

The purpose of this environmental baseline study (EBS) is to identify, assess, and document the initial environmental conditions on the site. The results from the EBS will be able to serve as a future reference point (baseline), as the EBS is to be periodically updated for the location. In addition to internal use within the mission, the baseline study is also to be held on file for possible use, when required, in discussions withthe host country, regarding damage or pollution claimed to have been caused by the mission.
