Steps towards implementation

In 1997 the Department of Health Policy and Planning took the lead in developing the National Environment and Health Action Plan (NEHAP) with an integrated multi-sectoral approach towards sustainable development. The aims of cooperation and integration are still as relevant now as they were back then.

In 2006, Malta has embarked on a revision of its NEHAP, keeping in mind the particular issues raised by the CEHAPE.
