Funding for research and development

The Ministry of the Environment finances research and development activities that serve governance by supporting:

  • forecasting of operations.
  • preparation, development and implementation of national and international environmental policy and legislation.
  • decision-making. 

The use of the ministry's appropriations for research and development activities is planned under the direction of the Research Director of the Ministry of the Environment. The departments of the ministry are in charge of administering research and development appropriations allocated to them.
