This article was exclusively written for The Sting by one of our passionate readers, Dr Ali Albasha. The opinions expressed within reflect only the writer’s views and not The European Sting’s position on the issue.

In the recent years, the globe has been experiencing environmental evolution and climate significant changes affecting the global and regional environment’s patterns. These changes leave an apparent effect on the ecological natural life and on the lives of human beings as well. In perceived sound, precautions and appropriate actions should be taken in anticipation to minimize such antagonistic effects in a way that helps motivate the accountability of the environmental safety and guarantees the adaptation within such circumstances. Impacts on individuals, fauna, flora, and water resources require taking actions and supporting intense corporation on all levels between the international governments and agencies.

Within the so-called the anthropogenic climate change, we are required to change various activities to reduce the vulnerability of social and biological systems not only by mitigating the greenhouse gas emissions, nor by controlling nuclear energy, recycling wastes and removing plastic in seas, treating acidification of waters or introducing unframed ecological topics, but to some extent by adopting a closely linked measure to the social and ecological environment.

This key measure is an ombudsman service for the environment, which can stand to engage constructively and act in the best for the social interest around the globe through developing a concrete and adaptive policy. It can help people to change their overstated behavioral attitudes towards the environment into friendlier response. So that its role is not limited to file up or examine cases from individuals, but it could be more positive and effective for both individuals and agencies in assessing the environmental aspects in collaboration with communities, furthermore, ombudsman would have the advantage of a specific and confined focus on the environment, to which role, ethical, and transparency standards could be implemented.

On July 2018, for instance, wildfire has ravaged several areas of forests in Sweden, where it needed assistance of civilians to struggle such condition; similarly, fires in Greece, Spain, and Portugal had the same impact on human and wildlife. To which, an essential role in providing structural perspective could be played by a general ombudsman for the environment.

The effectiveness of ombudsman offices for environment would be particularly an adaptive gateway for a better environmental administration and a well-planned social interactivity with unusual global changes in the ecosystem.
