Green infrastructure needed for Asia: Minister Indranee

Sustainable infrastructure development practices are needed to overcome the existential threats of global warming and rising sea levels to Singapore, says Indranee Rajah, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office. She was speaking on Oct 2 at the inaugural Asia Infrastructure Forum. Indranee, who is also second minister for finance and education, notes that “infrastructure built should not contribute further to climate change” through deforestation, ecological damage and carbon emissions. For this to happen, she says Asia needed “green infrastructure” focusing on better management of energy, water and land. The infrastructure will incorporate innovative solutions and technology, along with building materials that are responsibly sourced and durable. These green developments should also become “more resilient in times of disruption” as they factor in social, financial, economic and environmental concerns.
