Regional Directorate for the Environment

Welcome to the Regional Directorate for the Environment

The nine islands of the Azores are considered young in terms of the geological existence scale. They are considered far away in terms of exchanges and biological isolation and contemporary in terms of human implementation. Time evolution, volcanological phenomena, scenarios resulting from the strong erosion of natural elements and lastly, the different requirement standards for the use of the area, construction types, exchange or isolation in terms of culture and society, turned these nine islands into nine different human, natural and artistic ecosystems.

In this context and in the environmental sector, the execution of activities attributed to the Regional Directorate for the Environment includes its own responsibilities regarding Nature Conservation, which includes management of protected areas, species and habitats of the Natura 2000 Network, and Environmental Quality, including management and supervision of noise, air quality and waste. The different aspects of environmental promotion and education are also an important responsibility of this Regional Directorate.
