Regulatory Issues with Environmental Legal Framework in Somalia

It is obvious that sustainable development is impossible without an environmental legal
framework. The protections provided by the legal system are simply that: a pillar of defense for
the planet and the people who inhabit it, the very building blocks of existence. Unfortunately,
Somalia’s current environmental laws generally fail in this regard, as they are outdated,
ineffective, poorly administered and, not surprisingly, largely ignored.
Environmental law has blossomed from its infancy in the early 1970s into young adulthood
today. Following the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, countries made a concerted effort to enact
environmental laws. Somalia, Botswana , and South Sudan are the only three African nations
without an environmental legal framework as of 10th August-2023.
