This executive review describes in brief the International Conference on Transportation, Storage, and Disposal of Hazardous Materials, held at IIASA, and the ensuing Proceedings "Insuring and Managing Hazardous Risks." The Conference brought together representatives of academia, business and government from East and West to discuss the nature of current problems in the area of hazardous materials. An important objective of the Conference was to suggest steps that could be undertaken by industrial firms, the insurance industry, and government agencies to improve the safety and efficiency with which hazardous materials are produced and controlled in industrialized societies.
