ERA places “wellbeing” at the core of its Vision for Malta’s environment

A public consultation has been launched by the Environment & Resources Authority (ERA) for a Wellbeing First Vision for its National Strategy for the Environment for 2050.

The ERA explained that this Vision recognises that progress must be redefined and “places the environment at the heart of a system that supports overall wellbeing.” It envisions success being measured on “what really matters for quality of life, with environmental stability being an essential part of this.”

It added that the Vision promotes continuous growth while achieving higher living standards by respecting environmental limits and moving towards a future which gives environmental and societal considerations due regard, alongside economic development.

This first major milestone in the development of a National Strategy for the Environment sets the direction for the upcoming Strategy, the ERA said.

The ERA concluded by saying that “it serves as a far-sighted strategic course for the protection and management of the environment for the next thirty years, practically a generation, and it is what the National Strategy for the Environment will be based on for the country to strive towards a better quality of life.”

Further information on this Vision and the National Strategy for the Environment for 2050 is available here. [1]

The Authority encourages the public to participate in this consultation by sending feedback on nse@era.org.mt [2] or through this link [3] until 20th of September.
