Institutional Framework:

In June 1997, the responsibility of Egypt's first full time Minister of State for Environmental Affairs was assigned as stated in the Presidential Decree no.275/1997.

According to the Law 4/1994 for the Protection of the Environment, the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA) was restructured with the new mandate to substitute the institution initially established in 1982. At the central level, EEAA represents the executive arm of the Ministry




The Principal Functions of the Agency Include:

- Formulating environmental policies.
- Preparing the necessary plans for Environmental protection and Environmental development projects, following up their implementation, and undertaking Pilot Projects.
- The Agency is the National Authority in charge of promoting environmental relations between Egypt and other States, as well as Regional and International Organizations.
