Rationing among recommendations to tackle climate change

SINGAPORE: The Singapore Environment Council has suggested rationing exercises to remind Singaporeans of the value of resources.

It said these rationing exercises could be done every quarter at schools, offices and households.

The recommendation was among 11 that the council made to the National Climate Change Secretariat as part of a public consultation exercise.

Another suggestion by the council is to have more urban gardens of tropical fruit, vegetables and spices in landed properties and community garden spaces.

The council also said rooftop gardens in housing estates could also help reduce carbon footprint.

The council is a non-governmental organisation that coordinates environmental causes in Singapore.
