Enabling sustainable infrastructure is important for tackling climate change
- Climate change can directly impact physical infrastructure networks and indirectly impact the economy via disruption to transportation and electricity supply, among others. Given Southeast Asia’s long coastlines and heavily populated low-lying areas, the region is even more vulnerable to climate change.
- In the face of these challenges, sustainable infrastructure can strengthen the region’s economic resilience and reduce the risks of physical damages and financial losses. It is therefore imperative for us to attract and mobilise private capital to support future infrastructure needs.
Launched in conjunction with Enterprise Singapore, Infrastructure Asia is a project facilitation office that connects the region’s infrastructure opportunities and ecosystems to the world. This includes connecting partners, building capabilities, and providing advisory services for smart and sustainable urban solutions.
