Creating Environmental Awareness in the ROPME Sea Area

The Kuwait Action Plan emphasizes the importance of environmental public awareness in the area of marine environment and its protection from pollution as stated in Item 22 of Environmental Management which reads: “ Marine and coastal area environmental protection and enhancement cannot be achieved with the full support and cooperation of all those concerned. Therefore, adequate resources should be devoted to systematic and regular campaigns for public awareness of environmental issues in the Region”


To comply with the above requirement at regional as well as national levels, ROPME Secretariat has initiated since 1984 several environmental awareness programmes. The environmental awareness activities follow the three language policy of ROPME and are usually developed in English, Arabic and Farsi.
