In terms of Article 51 of the Environment Protection Act (Cap. 549), it is duly notified that the Environment and Resources Authority (ERA) has prepared “Conservation Objectives and Measures for Malta’s Marine Natura 2000 sites”, in line with the Flora, Fauna and Natural Habitats Protection Regulations (S.L. 549.44) and the Conservation of Wild Birds Regulations (S.L. 549.42).

Malta has designated eighteen (18) Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) including Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) and Special Protection Areas (SPAs) forming part of the European Natura 2000 Network aimed at ensuring the long-term survival of species and habitats listed under the Birds Directive 2009/147/EC and the Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC.

The first national policy for ESL (early school leaving) was published in 2015. This policy provided strategic measures aimed to be completed by 2020. Since 2018, research through EU funds has been carried out to evaluate this policy and develop the 2nd policy on ESL. The 2nd policy on ESL, has been planned through research recommendations and EU guidelines based on the three pillars: prevention, intervention and compensation. There are five strategic measures within each pillar. ‘Early Leaving from Education and Training – ELET – The way forward 2020-2030’ has been developed through a number of national consultations. However it is imperative that this policy goes for public consultation since ELET is a phenomena brought about by various factors that are not necessarily linked to the education side. ELET as opposed to ESL is also including vocational education together with academic routes.
