Environment is defined in different contexts. Generally, environment means what is around us. Sri Lanka has more than eighty environmental laws. The Constitution of Sri Lanka, National environmental Act, Coast conservation Act and the Marine pollution prevention Act can be shown as the main statutes in this nature.
