Environment is a national security concern: scholar
Tehran Times Environment Desk
TEHRAN - The spat over whether the environment department operates under the title of a ministry or an organization is futile as far as protecting the environment is not institutionalized in the minds of senior policy makers as a national security measure, Asghar Mohammadi Fazel, the dean of the College of Environment, said.
The Department of Environment has been a bone of contention among opposing groups, as critical minds are on the belief that the department fails to address key issues of “pollution, poachers and nature occupiers” appropriately, Mohammadi Fazel was quoted as saying.
Voices from the opposing camp also insist that the responsibilities of the environment department be left to a ministry or an organization, the Mehr news agency reported on Saturday.
There are some, on the other hand, who advocate a merger, recommending merge the department with the Forest, Rangelands and Watershed Organization or with the Ministry of Energy so as to entitle it with more authority, he added.
The environment department with its weak structure has been struggling to survive for more than 40 years, termed differently by outsiders as a fantasy department or bullying one which is hostile to the development, he added.
Those favoring a change in the title of the department are not aware of the consequences of the step, Mohammadi Fazel reminded, as nobody knows for sure if the future minister of environment can strongly implement its environmental plans in the face of MPs.
