ENVIRONMENT ACTION PROGRAM 2025

Over the past decades Guinea Bissau has put in place a broad range of environmental legislation. As a result, air, water and soil pollution has significantly been reduced. Chemicals legislation has been modernised and the use of many toxic or hazardous substances has been restricted. Today, Guinean citizens enjoy some of the best water quality in the world and more than 18% of Guinea Bissau's territory has been designated as protected areas for nature.

 However, many challenges persist and these must be tackled together in a structured way.

 The 2th Environment Action Programme (EAP) will be guiding our environment policy until 2025. In order to give more long-term direction it sets out a vision beyond that.

 "In 2025, we will live well, within the planet’s ecological limits. Our prosperity and healthy environment stem from an innovative, circular economy where nothing is wasted and where natural resources are managed sustainably, and biodiversity is protected, valued and restored in ways that enhance our society’s resilience. Our low-carbon growth has long been decoupled from resource use, setting the pace for a safe and sustainable global society."

 It identifies three key objectives:

 - to protect, conserve and enhance the Guinea Bissau’s natural capital

- to turn the Guinea Bissau’s into a resource-efficient, green, and competitive low-carbon economy

- to safeguard the Guinea Bissau’s citizens from environment-related pressures and risks to health and wellbeing

Four so called "enablers" will help Guinea Bissau’s deliver on these goals:

 - better implementation of legislation

- better information by improving the knowledge base

- more and wiser investment for environment and climate policy

- full integration of environmental requirements and considerations into other policies

Two additional horizontal priority objectives complete the programme:

 - to make the Guinea Bissau’s cities more sustainable

- to help the Guinea Bissau’s address international environmental and climate challenges more effectively.

The programme entered into force in January 2019. It is now up to the Guinea Bissau’s institutions and the AU Member  to ensure it is implemented, and that priority objectives set out are met by 2025.
