    卡西欧5263中国时区选哪个:Climate Change

    湖北体彩11选5走势图 www.mekspa.com OVERVIEW

    Climate change is a global challenge that requires a global response.

    As a small, low-lying city-state with one of the world’s most open economies, Singapore is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. We are committed to a multilateral, rules-based solution to address this challenge, and actively support international negotiations on this front.

     

    Singapore ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 1997, acceded to the Kyoto Protocol in 2006, and also ratified the amendments on the second commitment period (from 2012 to 2020) of the Kyoto Protocol in 2014. At the 21st Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (COP-21) in Paris on 12 December 2015, countries adopted the Paris Agreement, a universal and legally-binding agreement on post-2020 climate action. Singapore ratified the Agreement on 21 September 2016 in New York together with 30 other countries. The Paris Agreement entered into force on 4 November 2016, 30 days after it crossed the double threshold of 55 Parties ratifying and the total emissions of ratifying Parties exceeding 55% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Following three years of negotiations, Parties subsequently agreed to conclude the Paris Agreement Work Programme (PAWP), stipulating the modalities, procedures and guidelines for the implementation of the Paris Agreement, during COP-24 in Katowice, Poland in December 2018.

     

    Although Singapore accounts for less than 0.2 percent of global carbon emissions, we have made significant efforts domestically to reduce our emissions. About 95 percent of our electricity is generated from natural gas – the cleanest form of fossil fuel, and we have implemented policies to cap vehicle growth and manage vehicular emissions. Our small size, however, limits our ability to draw on alternative energy such as solar, wind or nuclear. Nonetheless, we firmly believe that it is important for all countries to contribute to global efforts to combat climate change, with each doing its best based on principles of common but differentiated responsibilities, respective capabilities and national circumstances.

     

    Singapore also strongly believes in contributing through training and capacity-building, so that fellow developing countries can take effective action on climate change. Singapore provides technical assistance bilaterally, as well as jointly with other countries and international organisations. We established a dedicated Climate Action Package (CAP) under the Singapore Cooperation Programme. The CAP, which will run for three years beginning in 2018, aims to help develop capacity in ASEAN in areas such as climate science, flood management, and disaster risk reduction.

     

    SINGAPORE'S CLIMATE ACTION PLAN

     

    Building on strategies earlier reflected in the National Climate Change Strategy 2012 and Sustainable Singapore Blueprint 2015, Singapore launched our Climate Action Plan in July 2016. The first part “A Climate-Resilient Singapore, for a Sustainable Future” details our plans to adapt to the impacts of climate change, such as in coastal protection and infrastructure. The second part “Take Action Today, for a Carbon-Efficient Singapore” explains the key tenets of our approach to reduce carbon emissions up to 2030, which include: (i) improving energy efficiency; (ii) reducing carbon emissions from power generation; (iii) developing and demonstrating cutting-edge low-carbon technologies; and (iv) responding through the collective action of government agencies, individuals, businesses and the community. These steps outlined in the Climate Action Plan go towards fulfilling Singapore’s climate pledge (i.e., our Nationally Determined Contribution or NDC) under the UNFCCC. In July 2015, we announced our target of reducing emissions intensity by 36 percent from 2005 levels by 2030, and stabilising emissions with the aim of peaking around 2030. In 2009, we announced our pledge to reduce emissions by 16 percent below business-as-usual levels by 2020.

     

    More information on Singapore’s Whole-of-Government efforts on climate change can be found on the National Climate Change Secretariat, Strategy Group, Prime Minister’s Office (NCCS) website.
