Environmental sustainability has been increasingly present on Qatar’s policy agenda since the early 2000s, with the ratification of the Permanent Constitution, the issuance of several environmental laws, and the launch of Qatar National Vision 2030, and its supplementary strategies. This chapter tracks the development of environmental policy through surveying the country’s key ‘guiding’ policy documents; Qatar National Vision 2030, the first and second National Development Strategies, sectoral strategies, and through reviewing laws and regulations that have been issued so far to safeguard the ecological systems and their inhabitants. This chapter also investigates the respective government institutions and how their role has evolved over the years.
