Environmental Code

The ministry plans to have the environment code adopted by the end of 2017. This code will still allow development to take place but with protection and restoration of environment. It allows the local administration to have more management control over the natural resources in their region. Citizens can have better access to information; therefore, they can take part in decision making process. Moreover, this code would also allow citizens to file complaints concerning environmental issues to an independent body at the Ministry of Environment.
