Niue State of Environment Report

The Department will ensure the 3 pillars of “Sustainable Development” Social, Economic and Environment are considered together wisely in the process of implementing the Department’s work plan. The Department of Environments vision and mission was created to incorporate and emphasise the concept of “development” which underpins the department responsibility towards sustainable management of natural resources & environment. This plan therefore demonstrates a consolidation of the Department’s responsibilities, while also maintaining its focus on more regulatory systems and efficient service delivery.

Department Vision: Conserve, Preserve and Sustainably manage Niue’s Environment to ensure quality of life for all and future generations.

Mission: To develop, implement and utilize the principles of best practice in the sustainable management of the country's natural resources & environment in partnership with all stake holders.

Value: The Department aims to promote key value and principles of good governance, accountability, and transparency in insuring a healthy secure environment for all to benefit from.


The themes of the SOE were selected by local stakeholders and experts to provide a checklist on the state of the environment for Niue. A number of sub-topics and indicators were identified under the themes to help focus
the discussion and this SOE report.

The government of Niue commissioned this State of Environment report with the purpose of:

* Providing all Niueans with the most up-to-date information on the state of the environment that is the backbone of the economy and community wellbeing; and

* Providing the government, community leaders and other decision makers responsible for the management of Niue’s environment with an assessment of how effective management actions have been, so as to identify any deficiencies that need to be addressed for the future of all Niueans
