National Environmental Policy of Trinidad & Tobago 2018

The NEP provides the overarching framework for environmental management. Subsequent national and sectoral policies with bearing on environmental or natural resource management; detailed procedures on environmental management; and concrete actions towards environmental sustainability in Trinidad and Tobago will therefore be grounded in the principles and broader approaches embodied in this NEP. Although the responsibility for monitoring the implementation and effectiveness of the NEP resides with the Environmental Management Authority (EMA), the achievement of policy actions will be driven by the action of each citizen across the public, private, governmental, and non-governmental sectors. All stakeholders therefore have a critical role in ensuring a sustainable future for Trinidad and Tobago.
