Singapore: It IS Easy Being Green!

Singapore, a tiny speck on the world map was an underdeveloped country back in 50s. This nation was also not blessed with any natural resources which could have been utilized for economic development. Yet, it achieved tremendous development and transformed into an economic powerhouse within a generation. The hard work and dedication of the government and the people is highlighted in its journey from third world to first world.

But what’s more interesting is that Singapore managed to increase its green cover while cruising on economic development. This country is surely an eye-opener for people who support deforestation and pollution in the name of development. From “Garden in a City” to “City in a Garden”, Singapore has showed every other developing country that it IS easy being green

  1. Singapore is an example of what happens when good planning and clear vision are materialized. It sets a really high bar for cities in the region, and I can see slowly some local governments in Southeast Asia have begun (or about to begin) implementing necessary changes to increase the quality of life of their people.

  2. Economic growth and pollution should not automatically come hand in hand, it is short-sighted to believe the environment is not important for everyone’s well-being.
