Our efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change have already begun.
In support of SDGs:
- Against rising sea levels, we are developing new solutions and a better understanding of our coastlines.
- We will put in place the defences to protect our coastlines along East Coast, Lim Chu Kang, Sungei Kadut, and around Jurong Island.
- Urban heat is all around us, for example, the kind that you feel while standing behind an air-conditioner. We will moderate rise in urban heat by increasing greenery and piloting the use of cool paint on building facades.
- Develop the capability and capacity of our local agri-food industry to produce 30% of our nutritional needs locally and sustainably by 2030
After more than 50 years of nation-building, one imperative is growing in importance, and that is sustainable development.
