The Policy’s key objectives are to state clear environmental policy instruments in an integrated approach to environmental protection, conservation, and management across all of the Cook Islands including the safe disposal of toxic chemicals on wastes to name a few. 

The Policy sets out six (6) policy objectives and instruments; 

  • Goal 1: Land
  • Goal 2: Marine
  • Goal 3: Biodiversity
  • Goal 4: Water
  • Goal 5: Air and Climate Change
