The Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and the Environment is the authority responsible for approving and implementing government environmental policies. Its mission is to develop and implement individual plans and programs for the development of the environmental sector and to address specific environmental issues. The department`s environment department, a team of departmental management personnel, is the key unit to which the environment sector has been assigned.

It also carries out impact assessments based on envisaged environmental protection measures, recommendations on the harmonisation of Cypriot law with European policy and environmental legislation acting as a national authority for a wide range of international agreements, agreements and intergovernmental organisations such as the Securities Deposit Centre (CSD), the Mediterranean Commission for Sustainable Development (MCSD). , the Environmental Priority Programme (SMAP). , the Mediterranean Action Plan (POP), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and environmental awareness.
