Coastal protection is a complex and long term undertaking. Beyond protecting Singapore from rising seas, it is also an opportunity for us to reimagine and remake our coastlines. The measures to be developed should be multi-functional, and integrated with land use and development plans. We will seek to design with nature where possible, to enhance the living and natural environment. We invite the community and various key stakeholders to share their views and contribute ideas to how we envision our future coastal areas to be.

Given Singapore’s varied land use, site-specific studies are being carried out progressively to formulate customised measures for the different segment of the coastline. We will explore a range of solutions that can be flexible and adaptive to enable us to adjust accordingly to new developments in climate science. We will engage widely with different stakeholders to seek feedback on the proposed protection measures when ready.

Our Coastal Conversation

Our Coastal Conversation is a series of community dialogue sessions to engage and seek ideas and inputs from the public and stakeholders as we develop potential coastal protection measures.

Our Coastal Conversation: City-East Coast

PUB commenced a site-specific study along the City-East Coast stretch in May 2021, to explore possible coastal protection solutions against the threat of rising seas caused by climate change. The study covers 57.8km of the coastline, across three areas – Changi, East Coast-Marina and the Greater Southern Waterfront district. More information about the study can be found here.

Our Coastal Conversation officially kicked off in October 2022. 135 participants from diverse backgrounds engaged in lively discussions over two sessions on how we can accommodate and balance different needs and aspirations when planning for coastal protection measures.

Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Ms Grace Fu and Speaker of Parliament Mr Tan Chuan-Jin listening in and interacting with participants who shared about their aspirations for the coastal areas at the session.

Participants also discussed the trade-offs among different options with Senior Minister of State for Sustainability and the Environment Dr Koh Poh Koon and Senior Minister of State for National Development Mr Tan Kiat How who attended the second session on 28 Oct.

During the sessions, many participants shared a common desire to protect our cherished coastal areas and enhance our community spaces with innovative design and solutions. Check out the visual recordings on the interesting viewpoints raised.
