Policy Priorities

Our Department is responsible for the Provincial Strategic Objective 7 (PSO7), which is an approach to “doing our business” The PSO7 is a plan of action which aims to mainstream sustainability and climate change through integrating resource-use efficiency throughout all government activities and, essentially, within all spheres of government.

Our Department has the responsibility to influence where possible, other key role players to help us achieve our purpose as a Provincial Department and ultimately achieve the policy priorities of our Regional Government.

The PSO7 plan of action is guided by key policy priorities which seek, through a streamlined approach, to grow our economy while making forward thinking decisions.

The PSO7 plan of action is a process through which we strategically allocate resources to four Work Groups, these being Climate Change AdaptationEnergySustainable Resource Management,  and Land-use Planning .
