 Organisation Description

The Environment Quality Authority has replaced the former Ministry of Environmental Affairs (MEnA), which was established in August 1998 by a decree from the President of the Palestinian National Authority.

EQA plays an important role as the planning, coordinating and executive body to improve environmental standards and attitude in the Palestinian Territories. Being the central representative authoritative body responsible for all environmental issues in the Palestinian Territories, EQA addresses all environmental constraints, including natural resource depletion and environmental pollution, as an approach towards sustainable development.

EQA aims at developing human resources and capacity building, promoting environmental awareness programs and activities, for the sound use and protection of environmental resources, arid land management, desertification combat, biodiversity conservation, pollution control, and awareness raising.
