The legislative assembly of Sindh province of Pakistan passed the bill on 24th February 2014 to enact Sindh Environmental Protection Act 2014.
The Act envisages protection, improvement, conservation and rehabilitation of environment of Sindh with the help of legal action against polluters
and green awakening of communities. It equally lays emphasis for the preservation of the natural resources of Sindh and to adopt ways and means for restoring
the balance in its eco-system by avoiding all types of environmental hazards.
It is first time in the history of 5,000 years old Indus valley civilization of Sindh that it has its own green law to preserve its ever-degrading environment. Sindh valley has been facing environmental threats since the invention of wheel and its wanton use to achieve the material gains. It got this act because of devolution of power from the center to the provinces of Pakistan. Now environmental protection is provincial subject in this country of more than 180 million population.
