Secure Environmental Approvals
The National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) has as its mission “to promote sustainable development by ensuring protection of the environment and orderly development in Jamaica”. Environmental Permissions (permits/licences) required to carry out development in Jamaica are obtained under the Natural Resources Conservation Authority Act. NEPA reviews the application and makes a recommendation to the Natural Resources Conservation Authority (NRCA) which is the approving entity.
The main environmental issues to consider when contemplating development are:
• Biological Resources
• Water Resources
• Solid Waste Disposal
• Public Health
• Coastal Zone
• Protected Areas
• Natural Hazards
• Air Quality
• Sewage Treatment and Disposal
See below for more information about how to secure your environmental permits…and then Contact NEPA.
