Climate and the environment

An overarching objective of all environmental efforts is natural diversity. Environmental protection is a very broad field covering everything from land management and pollution prevention to the promotion of natural diversity and the management of fish and game. 

All sectors have responsibility to take heed of environmental considerations in the course of their activities. The County Governor has a responsibility to ensure the implementation of the government's environment and land-use policies at both regional and local levels. Municipalities have a key role in efforts to protect the environment. Municipal guidance and follow-up is therefore an important part of the work carried out by the County Governor's department for environment protection.
