Given the urgency that is required, Government will lead by example by ensuring that all Ministries and Agencies integrate environmentally sustainable practices into their oper- ations and decision making . This course of action seeks to avoid and minimise environmental impacts associated with project activities and to evaluate all potential projects to ensure compliance with national and international policies and conventions. Ministries and Depart- ments would be required to develop sustainable development strategies and conduct environment assessments of their plans, programmes and pol- icies and would report biannually on their opera- tions. The State will also establish minimum standards for products and services and certify organisations that utilise environmentally friendly practices in their operations. Ministries and agencies will cooperate with other agencies, and non-governmental organ- isations (NGOs), to fulfil environmental compliance regulations and to ensure the protection of the country’s natural and cultural resources. Govern- ment will move toward a more sustainable future by leading and supporting an array of initiatives, including assessing the potential environmental effects of proposed actions prior to making any decisions and identifying opportunities to avoid, minimize, and mitigate the impacts on sensitive resources.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
