  • Constitution of Liechtenstein, 1921

The Constitution of Liechtenstein1, 1921, does not provide for environmental protection or natural resources.

The 1996 Law on the Protection of Nature and Landscape (only in German) is the general framework law on environmental protection.

The Office for Environmental Protection’s duty is to implement the market-based climate protection instruments of the Kyoto Protocol in Liechtenstein.

The Environmental Profile of the country for Johannesburg, 2002, also provides environmental protection legislation information about Liechtenstein. More information regarding environmental protection in Liechtenstein is available on the Ministry of Environmental Affairs, Land Use Planning, Agriculture and Forestry’s website.
