Changes in spanish environmental policy

Spain's new Government announced changes in environmental policy that may cause a significant step backwards for environmental protection in the country.

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Environment Miguel Arias Cañete informed the lower house of parliament that the Government led by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy since Dec. 21, 2011 will propose a "thorough" reform of the 1988 Coastal Law to "harmonise protection of the coastline with the development of non-detrimental economic activities."
