Singapore is actively involved in the mitigation of climate change through their Ministry of Environment as well as with several local NGOs.1 There have been education campaigns and pamphlet distributions in order to educate the general public on sustainable environmental practices as well as the science behind climate change.2 The goal of the government is to reduce the amount of emissions in all sectors of business as well as adopting green growth opportunities.3 Singapore is particularly vulnerable to the global effects of climate change as over 90% of the country's food supply is imported and changing weather patterns around the world will affect food production and security.4

Singapore has a highly developed and successful free-market economy. It enjoys a remarkably open and corruption-free environment, stable prices, and a per capita GDP higher than that of most developed countries. The economy depends heavily on exports, particularly in consumer electronics, information technology products, pharmaceuticals, and on a growing financial services sector. Real GDP growth averaged 8.6% between 2004 and 2007. The economy contracted 0.8% in 2009 as a result of the global financial crisis, but rebounded 14.8% in 2010, on the strength of renewed exports, before slowing to 5.2% in 2011 and 1.3% in 2012, largely a result of ...See More soft demand for exports during the second European recession. Over the longer term, the government hopes to establish a new growth path that focuses on raising productivity, which has sunk to an average of about 1.0% in the last decade. Singapore has attracted major investments in pharmaceuticals and medical technology production and will continue efforts to establish Singapore as Southeast Asia's financial and high-tech hub.
