Thursday, June 26, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: The Department of the Environment continues to review its plans and strategies for the next decade and a second consultation with stakeholders was held at the Belize Biltmore Plaza today.

Where the first consultation on the ten-year strategic development plan and five-year action plan was in broad and general terms, Chief Environmental Officer Martin Alegria says today’s consultation gets much more specific, as they nail down the actions they need to take to make Belize clean, green, strong and resilient on both land and sea.

DOE does not work in isolation; it must cooperate with other Government and private agencies to get its work done on both land and sea.

There are plans to expand the scope of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and introduce other tools for managing projects.

Alegria also spoke about the need to enforce existing laws on environmental protection and add new ones to address more recent issues such as precursor shipments, ship groundings and others.

The strategy and action plans should be complete in draft form in a month’s time and implementation is expected to begin late this year or early next year.
