About Us

The Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR) is committed to providing Singaporeans with a clean and sustainable environment, and resilient supplies of safe food and water.

It works with its three statutory boards – the National Environment Agency (NEA)PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, and the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) – to achieve its mission through innovation, vibrant partnerships and co-operation across the private, public and people (3P) sectors.

Singapore

 

MEWR’s key priorities are to ensure a sustainable, resource-efficient and climate-resilient Singapore. Our three strategic directions include economic resilience, resource resilience and climate resilience.

 

 

Climate Resilience: to address existential threats of climate change

especially rising sea levels and cope with rising temperatures

and changing rainfall patterns to sustain a liveable environment. 

Economic resilience: to ensure the future Singapore economy

remains competitive by overcoming carbon & resource constraints,

and to rally stakeholders towards sustainable economic growth.

Resource resilience: to ensure safe and secure supply of critical

resources, i.e. water and food, and to overcome global

resource constraints by maximising resource efficiency

& closing our resource loops. 

Our priorities are to:

•       Move Towards a Zero Waste Nation and Circular Economy

•       Build a Smart, Resilient and Sustainable Water System

•       Strengthen our Climate Change Resilience and Transition

        to a Low-Carbon Future

•       Achieve Food Safety and Security Sustainably

•       Build a Liveable and Endearing Home
