Environment Act 2000
The Environment Act 2000 articulates the promotion of sustainable development concept through ‘wise use’ principles and that proper environmental management will ensure ‘environmental benefits’ to be enjoyed by the present generations and investments for the future generations. It also emphasizes consideration of biodiversity conservation and sustainable use in economic planning. The Climate Change Policy is consistent and compliments the main principles of the Environ-ment Policy. It is now important to ensure that environmental protection and biodiversity conversation assume a primary role in the climate change agenda.
