Kia orana kotou katoatoa,

The National Environment Service (NES) has been working on reviewing and developing an environment policy and new legislation with the hopes for a more effective legal framework to address environment issues dismissed in the current Environment Act.

Throughout this review, NES has consulted with stakeholders and agencies. NES’s next step naturally, is to consult with the Cook Islands people including our Pa Enua.

We are currently still in ‘draft mode’ with our National Environment Policy 2020. By the end of May we are hoping to have a final draft for Public Consultation. A final draft will be made available in due course.

This is to inform you what NES is currently doing in the Policy and Legislation area so that you are aware. We will keep you updated. Questions and queries should be directed to the Policy and Legal Division of NES.
