We do not inherit the EARTH from our parents,
We borrow it from our children

- Antoine De Saint-Exupery


Environmental Law

Increasingly, at the national level, new environmental policies are being introduced, including a National Environmental Action Plan or National Plan for Sustainable Development. Such policies are often supported by legislation. Government policies in areas such as water, land distribution and food production, especially if supported by legislation, are likely to be highly significant for irrigation and drainage projects.

The Federal Government shall by notification in the official gazette establish the Pakistan environmental protection agency to exercise the powers and perform the function of this act (PEPA, 1997) & rules and regulations made.

“PEPA, 1997 is an act to provide for the protection, conservation, rehabilitation and improvement of the environment for the protection of and control of pollution and promotion of sustainable development”
