Singapore is committed to the effective implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement. We also believe in the importance of doing our part to support fellow developing countries.

In July 2018, Singapore launched the Climate Action Package (CAP) with the aim to support the region’s climate action efforts by developing capacity in key areas such as climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies, green climate finance and stormwater management.

The CAP courses are supported by the broader Singapore Cooperation Programme (SCP). Since 1992, the SCP has benefited more than 128,000 officials from fellow developing countries, by providing training in key areas such as sustainable development, urban planning, water and transport management.

Interested parties may access the following webpage for more information, as well as to submit an application for the courses. Courses are available for application 2 to 3 months before the scheduled course dates.
