Daniel Goh on Resource Sustainability Bill

(Updated: )

NCMP Daniel Goh spoke in support of the Resource Sustainability Bill in Parliament on Wednesday (Sep 4). He highlighted three aspects of the Bill which he felt are being neglected and suggested possible solutions. Firstly, the treatment of the three waste streams does not address the issue of transnational waste cycles. Secondly, the treatment of the food waste stream is too focused on the waste and neglects the upstream causes of food waste. Thirdly, the public education approach neglects the more effective model of targeting problem areas smartly by social nudging.
