by: Singapore

This report documents the findings of the IMCSD (Inter‐Ministerial Committee on Sustainable Development) which was set up in 2008 with the aim of developing a national sustainable development strategy for Singapore. The committee consulted extensively with business, community leaders and members of the public to develop the strategy. The resulting vision was to ‘Make Singapore a liveable and lively city state, one that Singaporeans love and are proud to call home’.

A series of strategies were developed to work towards in the transition to a sustainable Singapore. These were: Boosting Resource Efficiency, Enhancing the Urban Environment, Building Capabilities, and Fostering Community Action. These strategies are documented in detail in the overarching sustainable development strategy and include targets and time‐based actions.
