  • Constitution of the Republic of Cyprus1, 1960

The 1960 Constitution of Cyprus does not provide for environment protection. Cyprus has a furnished legislation regarding that field, which can be accessed through the Food and Organization Legal Office's website.

As a member of the European Union, Cyprus should have adopted EU environmental legislation and transposed EU treaties and regulations in its national law system, according to the European Union Directive on Environmental Protection.
