Agr/food security

30by30 goal to produce 30% of Singapore’s nutritional needs by 2030

To achieve this ambitious goal, Singapore has to push the boundaries of innovation towards productive, climate-resilient and resource-efficienct urban food solutions. We will do so with less than 1% of land set aside for agriculture food production and in a way that uses less water, less energy and generates less waste / keeps waste in the loop. In the long-run, the 30by30 goal also looks at anchoring agri-inputs to sustain production indefinitely. We already have first mover farms producing eggs, fish and vegetables toward the 30by30 goal. Examples include EcoARK, SAT who use recirculating aquaculture systems on floating fish farms that are highly productive and adaptable against negative environmental impacts. Such urban food solutions will benefit Singapore directly in food security and can be exported as solutions to other similar cities as us. Alternative proteins are a potential game changer which would allow Singapore to produce more of our protein needs in a productive and sustainable manner.

The Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment and Singapore Food Agency are working closely with other government agencies, the industry and Institutes of Higher Learning/Research Institutions to develop the 30by30 plan via 5 strategies – i) space and infrastructure, ii) regulatory reviews, iii) research, innovation and enterprise, iv) sustainable eco-system growth and v) public engagement and rallying citizens to do their part.
