Security, following the traditional concept, is observed as a synonym for national security with two main objectives: preserving the territorial integrity of the state and the sovereignty over that territory in political and military terms. The ever-increasing environmental problems lead to the modern understanding of security, which, among other things, also implies the influence of the basic security factors on the environment, with particular reference to the ecosystems: water, soil, air, etc. In this context in the newer security paradigm, new types of security appear, such as environmental security, water security, etc. The authors of the paper present and explain the full institutional framework for environmental security in the Republic of North Macedonia, covering the competent state bodies which are aiming to provide and preserve a healthy environment in their scope of work. Here are included the Ministry of Interior, prosecutors and judicial authorities, inspection bodies within individual ministries in the country, in the fields of agriculture, forestry, hunting, water resources, environment, nature, etc. The authors also explain the interinstitutional cooperation of the aforementioned institutions in the Republic of North Macedonia as the main prerequisite for successful implementation of measures for a healthy environment in order to prevent the pollution of ecosystems, including criminal acts in the field of ecological crime.
