The Ministry for Energy and Health is responsible for environmental health, energy and water. The Environmental Health Directorate promotes and safeguards the well-being and health of the public from adverse environmental effects, while the Malta Resources Authority is a public corporate body with regulatory responsibilities relating to water, climate change, energy and mineral resources. The Ministry for Transport and Infrastructure is responsible for building regulations and internal and external transport, while Transport Malta regulates the transport sector.
