Switzerland Summary


Switzerland (41,290 sq km; 7,283,274 inhabitants) is a federal republic. All environmental legislation is promulgated by the Swiss Agency for the Environment, Forests and Landscape (SAEFL), which is the federal government’s center of environmental expertise and is part of the Federal Department of Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications. SAEFL, among other things, drafts laws and ordinances, implements environmental protection measures in cooperation with cantonal authorities (there are 26 cantons in Switzerland), industry, and non-governmental organizations, and assists cantonal and community authorities in enforcing environmental laws and regulations.
