Exceptional areas like Akamas/Akama and Karpas/Karpaz peninsula are home to important habitats and endemic species of rare flora and fauna which are in danger of being destroyed due to excessive quarrying, overgrazing, degradation, illegal, non-selective and large-scale bird trapping, colonization by alien and invasive pioneer species, littering, illegal hunting, domestic-touristic development, and wildfires.

Nature has no boundaries. It is what we all have in common. Let’s work together, to ensure the survival of the unique Cyprus nature!

The development of a model that is sustainable for this and future generations offers the best way forward to create a better world, by ending poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Sustainable development and climate action are linked – and both are essential to the present and the future of the humankind. It is, therefore, vital that the international community meet the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). There are 17 SDGs which have targets to be achieved by 2030. UN is calling countries - developed and developing - for a global partnership. As the Technical Committee on Environment, we would like to support this call and connect you with the relevant SDGs information below. With just one click you can identify all17 SDG’s and to learn more about their goals and targets.
