In the preparation of the NSDS, several
stakeholders were involved in the general consultation process. Besides public
inquiry meetings, stakeholders could submit written comments to the draft strategy,
which were, when possible, incorporated in the final NSDS. During the Review of
the NSDS , more stakeholders were added in the mechanism. The NSDS was improved
with the public participation.
The Council for the Environment is an
important institution for all issues that concern environmental policy and
management. It has a wide representation and advises the National Government on
environmental and SD issues. Environmental NGO’s are encouraged to get involved
in the environmental and SD policy formulation process; some are already
members of the Council for the Environment.
