Environmental sustainability is multi-dimensional and all nations face challenges in their efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The Asia Environment Lecture is a joint initiative of the National University of Singapore’s Asia-Pacific Centre for Environmental Law (APCEL) at the Law Faculty, and two multi-disciplinary programmes in NUS focussing on the environment – the M.Sc. (Environmental Management) [MEM] and the Bachelor in Environmental Studies (BES). This series of Lectures, which started in 2013, provides an unique opportunity to hear from world leaders in the environment field, with particular focus on achieving a sustainable environment in Asia. The Lecture is generously supported by City Developments Ltd (CDL).
