Recent discussions on greenfield development and forest clearance are a sign that Singaporeans are paying more attention to the issue, said MP Henry Kwek in Parliament on Thursday (Mar 4). He asked if the Ministry of National Development would consider creating guidelines to estimate lifecycle carbon emissions for both greenfield and brownfield developments. In the face of uncertainties in urban planning amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Mr Kwek asked if Singapore's land use plans could adapt to the changing trends.
