KUWAIT

Law No. 21 for the Year 1995 established the Kuwait Environment Protection Authority tasked with carrying out all activities and functions necessary to ensure the protection of the environment in the State. Since establishment, 14 major international agreements have been ratified, and a large majority of these were transcribed into law by KEPA. In 2009, KEPA established a GIS-based Environmental Monitoring Centre to provide a database for information about the environment to help in monitoring of industrial activities in the State through online monitoring programmes linked to the Centre.
