Doug Weir has researched the toxic legacy of armed conflict and military activities since 2005. He currently manages the Toxic Remnants of War Project, which was established in 2012 to document the humanitarian cost of wartime environmental pollution. Together with its partners, it seeks to monitor active conflicts for environmentally damaging incidents and research methodologies for improving data collection on environmental risks. The project is a founding member of the Toxic Remnants of War Network, a global coalition of NGOs advocating for a greater standard of environmental and humanitarian protection before, during and after conflict. You can follow the Project and Network on @detoxconflict and @TRWNetwork or at www.toxicremnantsofwar.info and www.trwn.org.
