How can cities be better prepared in the face of impending
stresses and shocks? What are the innovative solutions that
cities can adopt to address cross-cutting challenges such as
climate change and changing demographics? In a world where
cities are facing increasingly complex challenges, resilience is
critical for cities to not just survive, but adapt and thrive.
A Resilient Singapore maps out what Singapore has done
and will continue to do to build its resilience. Through the
sharing of case studies and actions, this publication captures
Singapore’s resilience story—An urban transformation into a
highly liveable, sustainable yet high-dense city-state and its
continued pursuit to maintain a competitive economy while
ensuring a high quality of life for its residents.
Resilience requires us to take an integrated systems approach.
It is as much about robust infrastructure and plans as it is
about involving and engaging diverse stakeholders. Everyone
has a part to play in this ongoing journey of building a resilient
Singapore, to make the city better in times of peace and to
work together to weather any crisis.
