The Kuwaiti Constitution stipulates in Article 26: "The State protects and improves the environment in which people live and the ecological environment. It prevents and controls pollution and other public hazards.”
The Constitution also includes many provisions that pertain to the crime of misusing natural resources. For example, Article (9) Paragraph (2) says: "The State ensures the rational use of water and natural resources and protects rare animals and plants. Appropriation or damaging of natural resources by any organization or individual using whatever means is prohibited."
