The Federal Ministry of Environment was established to ensure effective coordination of all environmental matters, which hitherto were fragmented and resident in different line Ministries. The creation was intended to ensure that environmental matters are adequately mainstreamed into all developmental activities. The protection of the environment is paramount to the achievement of the objectives of the country's socio-economic reforms e.g. National Economic Empowerment Strategy (NEEDS) and other regional and global initiatives such as the New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD), Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Johannesburg Plan of Implementation (JPOI).
