Detailed Description

Introduction
 
The global climate situation is changing. Extreme weather events are expected to be more intense and frequent, and global mean sea levels are projected to rise.
 
As a small, low-lying island city-state, Singapore is especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Rising sea levels, changes to our rainfall patterns, and increasing temperatures will affect our health, water supply, biodiversity and greenery, and coastline, among other things.  It is thus imperative for us to work with the international community to address this urgent global problem. Singapore needs to do our part by further reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and embark on a transition to a low-carbon future.
 
We invite you to contribute your views on how Singapore can work towards becoming a low carbon global city-state – one with a competitive economy, sustainable environment, and a high quality of life for all.
 
The Public Consultation Document attached outlines the areas of concern that you can help us with, and you can e-mail us at nccs_contact@pmo.gov.sg with your replies or feedback to any of the questions by 30 September 2019.
