The Inter-Ministerial Committee on Sustainable Development (IMCSD) was set up in January 2008 to formulate a national strategy for Singapore’s sustainable development in the context of emerging domestic and global challenges. The IMCSD was co-chaired by the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment (MSE) and the Ministry for National Development (MND). Other members include Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Transport and Ministry of Trade & Industry.

The Sustainable Development Blueprint was developed by the IMCSD and released in 2009 to outline key targets and initiatives to improve resource efficiency and enhance Singapore’s urban environment for the next 10 to 20 years.

For more information about the Sustainable Development Blueprint, please visit the Sustainable Singapore microsite.

With the release of the Blueprint, the IMCSD completed its work and a Sustainable Development Policy Group was set up to monitor the implementation of blueprint initiatives and the progress towards reaching the Blueprint targets. The group is co-chaired by MSE and MND.
