Chairman's Message Central Environmental Authority

MrChandrarathnaPallegamaThe environment, which is most discussing topics at the moment. In such situation, it is a great pleasure for me to forward the Chairman’s message on behalf of the Central Environmental Authority.

The Central Environmental Authority (CEA) has brought together a significant extent the development needs and environmental concerns. This meeting between the development drive and the environment protection has facilitated bringing scientists in the general field of environment and environmental activists.  

The crisis of environmental destruction has made it mandatory to expend a considerable effort in “the protection of nature” by the government, and there is now an increasing recognition of the vital importance of safeguarding the natural environment of our country for the sustainable development of our nation.

The National Environmental Act No:47 of 1980, which is the legal framework to commit to protect the mother nature. I would like to say that as every citizen, we have our own responsibility of protecting and conserving the environment.

I am grateful to the His Excellency the President of Sri Lanka who is also the Hon. Minister of Mahaweli Development and Environment, Mr. Maithreepala Sirisena, who has invited me to devote my time at the CEA.


May CEA run in the spirit of transparency among all stakeholders and yield environment friendly dividend to all the citizens in Sri Lanka, so that in this way our mission will contribute to promoting the environmental protection in the development drive. May CEA in this way contribute to further the prosperity and welfare of people in our country.

Chandrarathne Pallegama

Chairman
