Mariam Jaafar on support measures for Phases 2 and 3 (Heightened Alert)

Climate change mitigation must be placed at the heart of Singapore’s plans to recover from the COVID-19 crisis, with speed and impact at the forefront, said MP Mariam Jaafar in Parliament on Tuesday (Jul 27). She gave examples like the expansion of public transport, deployment of large-scale renewables such as solar, building retrofits, incentives for improving industrial efficiency, and scaling up carbon capture, utilisation and storage. She said even delays in HDB projects caused by COVID-19 offer an opportunity to rethink earlier plans and include new climate change solutions.
