Frequently Asked Questions
How did the CLC come up with the Singapore Liveability Framework?
The purpose of the Singapore Liveability Framework is to provide a lens through which city leaders can view their cities. The CLC’s research has distilled key principles from Singapore’s development experience into the Framework and is not meant to be exhaustive, but is a useful guide for developing sustainable and liveable cities.

The CLC works with a network of local and international partners who share a common interest in developing liveable and sustainable cities. Supporting the CLC is also an esteemed group of Advisors, Fellows, and Experts, as well as 22 local stakeholder government agencies.

Countries all around the world are facing the challenge of sustainable development, i.e. balancing economic development with environmental protection. The PRC faces a similar challenge due to its rapid economic growth and the needs of its huge population. The Tianjin Eco-city is one way of demonstrating the determination of both countries in reconciling global climate change, strengthening environmental protection, resource and energy conservation, and building a harmonious society. Its aim is to create a model, which will benefit not only other cities in the PRC, but also other countries that are facing similar challenges.
The project will also help to further broaden and deepen the PRC-Singapore partnership, and provide a new platform for engagement between the leaders, officials and businessmen of both countries.
