Oman vision 2040: Environment Authority Unveils Year Plan

Muscat (ONA): The Environment Authority today held a press conference during which it reviewed the outcome of its activities last year and unveiled programs of its plan of the new year, which underscores the preparation of a national strategy associated with the goals of Oman Vision 2040.

“There is ongoing coordination between the Environment Authority and the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and investment Promotion pursuant to which a decision to ban plastic bags is expected to be taken and a date to be set for the ban in the next few years,” said Dr. Abdullah Ali Al Amri, Chairman of the Environment Authority.

Dr. Abdullah Ali Al Amri pointed out that the use of plastic bags was banned earlier and the bags were replaced with two-time-use and three-time-use bags and this resulted in cutting down the quantity of discarded plastics.

In a speech at the press conference, Dr. Abadullah Ali Al Amri, Chairman of the Environment Authority, said that, since its inception, Oman Vision 2040 committed the environment sector to realize clear-cut objectives within the span of one decade. Accordingly, work started on Oman Environment Strategy envisaging a set of goals to be met on a yearly basis over a span of 10 years as an executive plan for the next two decade, he said.

He added that the programs, initiatives and projects brought about by Oman Environment Strategy will reflect positively on the environment performance of the Sultanate of Oman, upgrading its global rating.

A national team tasked with environment indicators was formed under the leadership of environment specialists and competent partners from public and private sector establishments.
