Quality of life is dependent on our environment. The environment’s protection is imperative, but the Jamaican government has failed to operationalize its promises of assuring commitment to environmental protection and sustainability. Subsequently, the weakness of environmental regulatory and institutional framework is the primary obstacle to good environmental stewardship.

CAPRI in partnership with the USAID-NIA, and with Diana McCaulay as the lead researcher is undertaking a study that seeks to review and assess four aspects of Jamaica’s planning and environmental legislative and enforcement framework, with a view to identify weaknesses and propose remedies.
