Singapore Reaffirms its Commitment To Collective Climate Action Through Singapore Pavilion At COP28

0 313

Singapore has launched the Singapore Pavilion at the 28th Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28), which will run from 30 November to 12 December 2023 in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This is the second Singapore Pavilion held at COP.
Themed ‘Accelerating Collective Climate Action’, the Pavilion showcases how Singapore is
convening players across sectors and domains, and from around the world, to achieve net zero
emissions by 2050 and build a climate-resilient future.

The Pavilion is a partnership with around 100 entities, including corporates, academia, international
organisations, and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Its daily programmes span
memoranda of understanding (MOU) signings, launches of initiatives by partner entities, innovation
showcases, panels, fireside chats and more. This includes programmes staged by youth delegates
from the inaugural Climate Youth Development Programme, which was launched earlier this year.

This year’s Singapore Pavilion will also present the inaugural Climate Leaders’ Assembly (CLA), in
collaboration with Bain & Company and Amazon Web Services. Taking place today on the sidelines
of COP28, the event will gather around 150 global leaders from finance, business, philanthropy and
other domains. Participants will discuss the themes of nature, energy and industry, with the aim of
accelerating the global movement toward net zero emissions, and with a focus on Asia.

In her welcome address at the Pavilion’s launch event, Minister for Sustainability and the
Environment Grace Fu said, “To us, the Singapore Pavilion is not just a physical space. It represents
our commitment to climate action. It allows Team Singapore – made up of the public, private and
people sectors – to show what we are doing collectively to tackle the challenge of our generation.”
She added, “We look forward to welcoming guests and visitors from all over the world over the next
two weeks. It is here that we hope to forge new partnerships and accelerate climate action together.”
