Vice President's Office


Environment is essential for our development strategy for the reason of striking a balance between economic and social gains in fulfulling our needs without compromising those of the future generations.

The Government considers environmental management as a priority agenda as reflected in its various initiatives including National Environmental Policy (1997), Environmental Management Act (2004) and its Regulations, programmes and projects.

Public education and awareness are necessary for effective environmental management in order to nurture our natural resources and the environment in a sustainable manner. This is from the fact that knowledge and awareness offer the insights we need to guide our decisions and effective actions. This website signifies, once again, the Government efforts in promoting awareness for environmental management in the country. I believe that this website will contribute positively in improving our knowledge, awareness and attitude that will facilitate our quest to address environmental challenges facing our land and its remarkable biodiversity. Our environment is our present and our future, let every stakeholder play the appropriate roles.
