Singapore faces twin challenges from climate change, says minister


SINGAPORE — Singapore faces twin challenges from climate change and is looking to a new coastal protection plan to preserve the island’s most at-risk shores, the country’s environment minister said.

“Our twin challenges are coastal floods … (and) extreme rainstorms that could cause more intense inland flooding. So we need a system that can help us manage both,” said Grace Fu, minister for sustainability and the environment.

The project, launched Tuesday by Singapore’s national water agency PUB, will collate science and data on how best to mitigate and adapt to coastal damage before creating a roadmap of action, Fu told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Asia” Wednesday.
