PUBLIC NOTICE: Suspension of receipt, consideration and approval of permits and ESIA for activities in wetlands

The National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) hereby informs the general public that effective 2nd September 2021, we have suspended receipt, consideration and approval
of user permits and Environment and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA) for activities and/
or development projects in wetlands until further notice.

The suspension is intended to reduce pressure on wetlands but also enable government build

capacity to regulate developments in wetlands.

The public is encouraged to report any activity or developments taking place in wetlands to NEMA or the nearest Police station/post.
