Australia is working with Singapore to find solutions to global climate change challenges through the Singapore-Australia Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for Cooperation on Low-Emissions Solutions.
The first annual dialogue under the MoU took place on 15 October 2021. Australia and Singapore agreed on the priority cooperation areas for 2022 during the dialogue, including:
- conducting joint studies on low-emission solutions (a hydrogen supply chain study, for example)
- collaborative research and development on low-emission solutions (including hosting a joint research symposium)
- exploring large-scale renewable electricity trade
- regional emissions measurement, verification and reporting capacity building efforts.
Singapore and Australia also announced a low emissions technology partnership in June 2021 to build on the MoU. The partnership supports the commercialisation of low-emissions fuels and technologies in maritime shipping and port operations.
Both countries remain committed to their strong partnership in developing a low-carbon and sustainable future.
