The new National Strategy for Environment (2009-2018) and the Action Plan (2009-2013) are currently in the final stage of being adopted. In 2006, the Inter-departmental Advisory Council for Sustainable Development was established. It is chaired by the Minister of Economy and Energy and is composed of vice-ministers and directors of specialised administrations whose activities relate to Sustainable Development.
