New environment authority is toothless – PD

Partit Demokratiku said that they are concerned about the new entity “Ambjent Malta” since it was established without any power to deliver the changes which are needed.

In their statement PD said they are satisfied with Conrad Borg Manché as the head of “Ambjent Malta” but said that Malta needs independent institutions to work in the interest of the Republic.

According to the PD, “Ambjent Malta” should address:

  • Aquifer regeneration
  • Management of watersheds
  • Reclaiming and harmonisation of urban land
  • National strategic plan for aquaculture
  • Soil preservation
