Policy and Planning
The Policy and Planning Division has as main task to formulate and review policies on key environmental issues. The Division has reviewed the National Environmental Policy (NEP) 1991 and developed NEP 2007 to ensure consistency and application of international policies relating to environmental protection.

The Division has also coordinated several Technical Advisory Committees in the formulation of policies on complex environmental issues namely: rock quarry, disposal of used oil, coal ash management, mineral resource sites, pig farming, management of pig waste, and management of poultry wastes. Presently, the Division is focusing on the development of policies to ban and reduce the abusive use of plastic bags and on the protection, management and valorisation of Environmentally Sensitive Areas.
