The action plan on the environmental front is the National Conservation Strategy. This was approved by the federal cabinet in March 1992. After this, a Cabinet Implementation Committee was set up under the chairmanship of then Minister for Environment, Anwar Saifullah Khan, and with the Minister of Finance, Education, Agriculture, Science and Technology, the Minister of State for Forests, the Deputy Chairman, Planning Commission, and Secretary, Environment as members. The environment ministry in general, and its NCS Unit in particular were given the secretariat functions of the committee. However, since the implementation committee was an ad hoc one, after the dissolution of the previous government its fate is not clear. The secretariat is, however, performing its tasks.
