Law No. 9/2012, The Environmental Conservation Law
The law enables the formation of an Environment Conservation Committee and the establishment of an Environmental Management Fund to enable environmental conservation works. The law also identifies several duties and powers of the Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry, one of which is to create guidance related to mitigation and adaptation of climate change. Others include stipulating environmental quality standards (e.g. noise, water quality, solid waste) and establishing monitoring programmes for the conservation and enhancement of the environment.
