The protection of the environment is one of the Government’s fundamental aims, Government Spokesman Nicos Christodoulides has said, noting that this aim is being promoted with the main axis of ensuring a unified policy and adequate, up-to-date and properly implemented legislation, with the ultimate goal of achieving sustainable development and the good use of resources.
Addressing a seminar on the Rethink project (Reduce-Reuse-Recycle) of the LIFE+ programme, Christodoulides said the Government’s efforts were being supported at the right time by the LIFE+ programme.
He said the existence of a comprehensive communication strategy to promote the reduction, reuse and recycling of waste was what was missing in Cyprus.
The Government Spokesman furthermore expressed hope that this project would bring about significant changes in the perception, awareness and habits of the public and the involved parties in waste management.
