Launch of Public Consultation on National Climate Change Strategy

Category : envt

"Launch of Public Consultation on National Climate Change Strategy." Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources News Release 18/2006, 30 May 2006.

The Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR) and its statutory board, the National Environment Agency (NEA), have been working with other agencies to develop a holistic National Climate Change Strategy (NCCS). NCSS intends to explain how Singapore can address climate change in an environmentally and economically sustainable way, and actively engage the people and private sectors in climate change.

The NCCS will examine four key prongs of action: vulnerability and adaptation to climate change, mitigation of our carbon emissions, raising awareness on climate change as well as competency building.

MEWR and NEA launched a public consultation on 30 May 2006 to gather ideas and feedback on the proposed NCSS. In particular, the following types of feedback will be sought:

  • Ideas on how existing climate change measures can be improved;
  • Comments on proposed climate change measures;
  • Ideas on other climate change measures that should be explored.

Visit mewr.gov.sg/nccs to access the NCCS consultation document and provide feedback. The consultation exercise will close on 30 September 2006.

Thanks to Marcus Ng for the alert!
