Authentic environmental information is fast becoming a necessity, just like any other strategic information necessary for human health and sustainable use of our environmental resources. Issues ranging from reduced availability of fresh water, contamination of natural systems, waste management, sustainable use of resources, population growth, air pollution and climate changes, conservation of biodiversity and land degradation to remediation of oil spills and land mines have all remained hot topics of discussion at public forums and media conferences in Kuwait. Finding environmental information in Kuwait has been a challenge for citizens and residents for a long time. They have usually ended up with a set of outdated and contradictory data emerging from various organizations and institutions working on the environment.
