Singapore has just renamed the Ministry of Sustainability and Environment (MSE), which was formerly known as the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources. This new name reflects a strong new focus on sustainability measures. Minister Grace Fu, who leads the MSE, has discussed these changes in many recent interviews, where she has also talked about what Singapore can do to increase sustainability in the future.
