No Time To Waste: Sustainable Environmental Management in a Changing Southern Sudan

This document was published by AWEPA in 2010 and serves as an overview of South Sudan’s current environmental conditions. The book highlights a number of environmental subjects: waste management and pollution; deforestation and unsustainable forest use; climate change, drought, desertification and flooding; the relationship between natural resources, environment and conflict; and finally, ways to move forward in the field of environmental management.

The publication offers a work plan and recommendations made by the Specialised Standing Committees of the South Sudanese Legislative Assembly (SSLA) in conjunction with AWEPA. These recommendations discuss the how-to’s of developing and implementing environmental policy, a framework for environmental law, and rules and regulations to support them.
