In some cases, political will is not enough to implement sustainable natural resources management policies. Why is it so? Because laws and policies instruments that are supposed to derive from, and be consistent with, a national vision of development, are often directly influenced by international agencies, especially in Southern States. The Wold Bank sponsored “National Environmental Action Plans” (NEAP) and “Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers” (PRSP), as well as some strategy papers or policy statements developed in accordance with bi-lateral or multi-lateral agencies, constitutes some tools that directly put into question the independence and the freedom of action of national political decision-makers.
