New structure bodes well for environment governance


AS a former environment minister, I congratulate Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for getting the environment ministerial structure right by combining the Energy and Natural Resources Ministry (KeTSA) with the Environment and Water Ministry (Kasa). Finally, the country has the right structure to ensure holistic environmental governance.

In Malaysia, historically, a minister is called “environment minister” when he/she is responsible for the environment sector pursuant to the Environmental Quality Act 1974 (EQA 1974) and its enforcement agency, the Department of Environment (DOE).
