Pakistan environmental protection agencies are not well equipped to effectively implement laws. This was stated by Saeed A Khan, professor at the NED University of Engineering and Technology.

Khan was particularly critical of the Pakistan Environmental Protection Agency, which he said, had failed to identify the objectives of environmental sustainability.
