Welcome to Eswatini Environment Authority

Our mission is to ensure that Eswatini’s development is environmentally, economically and socially sustainable, by means of promoting sound environmental policies, practices and development, which meets appropriate national and international standards.


Our Main Objective

The main objective for EEA is to ensure that the environment in the Kingdom of Eswatini is treated in a proper way now and in the future. “Environment” means, without being limited to, the atmosphere, water in all its forms, land, soil and subsoil, flora, fauna, energy sources, mineral, topographical formations with energy potential, geothermal resources, living resources, landscape resources and other elements, and factors such as residues, garbage, waste and refuse, noise, living conditions in human settlements, and man-made products. EEA controls that the environment is treated properly and monitors the development in the state of the environment.

State of the Environment Report 2020

The State of the Environment Report, 2020, is a tool for reporting on causal factors that are influencing the environment and the sustainability of the country’s environment. It also highlights potential environmental challenges and recommend intervention mechanisms for the management of the environment hence publishing the report is critical so scholars and other interested parties can be able to use it.


Eswatini has been robust in its fight against the consumption of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) to meet the Montreal Protocol targets.


Waste Management

The collection, transport, treatment and disposal of waste, together with monitoring and regulation of the waste management process.



Environment means the whole or any component of: a. nature, including air, land, water, soils, minerals, energy other than noise, and living organisms other than humans; b. the interactions between the components of nature and between those components and humans; c. physical, aesthetic and cultural qualities or conditions that affect the health and well-being of people, and unless the context otherwise requires, refers only to the environment within the territory of Eswatini or over which Eswatini exercises rights of sovereignty, and “environmental” has a corresponding meaning.
