Enactment of Regulations under the Sindh Environment Protection Act, 2014

Under the Sindh Environment Protection Act, 2014, the principal piece of environmental legislation for the Province of Sindh, the Provincial environment regulator, the Sindh Environmental Protection Agency is required to enact regulations for, inter alia, the regularization of environmental consultants required to undertake environmental assessments under the 2014 Act. This has not been done to date with the result that the credibility of environmental assessments for major development projects remains doubtful at best. PILAP has filed a petition before the Sindh High Court asking for enactment of such regulations.
