3 January 2007

Maputo, Mozambique, 03 Jan – The Mozambican Ministry for Coordination of Environmental Action has opened a site on the Internet to publish legislation on the rights and duties related to the environment, officials said.

The Environmental Action Ministry’s initiative, which was supported by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), aims to allow easy access to the legal diplomas currently in place in Mozambique, in real time, for all potential users of Mozambican environmental legislation.

The legislation included in the database is intended to be comprehensive in terms of covering all environmental issues, and provide all legal and administrative acts relating to the environment.

Available at http://www.legisambiente.gov.mz/ , this website is updated monthly. (macauhub)
