Angola has developed in the last decade comprehensive environmental legislation regarding water resources, petroleum, mines, and land, and have increased engagement with regional and international bodies and partners. As a result, the UNDP Country Office has been also engaged in environment projects in Angola in the last few years and this continues to be a key area of intervention, not only because of the UNDP’s global strategic plan but also as a direct result of the Angolan State’s continued focus on this area.
