Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning

The Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning (Turkish: Çevre ve Şehircilik Bakanlığı) is a government ministry office of the Republic of Turkey, responsible for the environment, public works, and urban planning in Turkey. The ministry is headed by İdris Güllüce since 25 December 2013,[1] "link hatalı"after the resignation of his predecessor Erdoğan Bayraktar

History[edit]

The Ministry was formed in 1983 through the merger of the Ministry of Public Works (Turkish: Bayındırlık Bakanlığı, formed 3 May 1920) and the Ministry of Development and Housing (Turkish: İmar ve İskan Bakanlığı, formed 1958). The result was the Ministry of Public Works and Housing (Turkish: Bayındırlık ve İskan Bakanlığı), which was renamed to the current Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning on 29 June 2011.[2]
