Green Drinks (April) – Reducing Carbon Emissions

Green Drinks x NCCS present – Reducing Carbon Emissions: Opportunities and Challenges for Singapore

This April, Green Drinks and the National Climate Change Secretariat collaborate once again in a very special panel discussion and consultation event.

As a party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Singapore is actively involved in ongoing negotiations for a new international agreement on climate change.  In preparations for the new global agreement, expected to be agreed upon by the end of this year, the government is consulting stakeholders to gather feedback on mitigation measures that will allow Singapore to further reduce its carbon emissions in the post-2020 period.  These dialogues might help to surface low-carbon strategies, technology and other opportunities that Singapore could explore.  They could also inform national research and policy directions, as well as areas for potential public-private collaboration.

The event agenda includes an opening presentation by NCCS to introduce the background to the dialogue as well as set the context for the night’s discussion.  This will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by GreenDrinks before comments and questions are opened to the floor.   Be there and let your constructive ideas be heard!

Mr Tang Tuck Weng, Senior Director, NCCS on: Challenges and opportunities for Singapore

Ms Melissa Low, Research Associate, Energy Studies Institute on: Updates on the ongoing climate change negotiations post-Lima
