National Environment Agency Singapore (NEA)

The National Environment Agency has partnered with the people, public and private communities to engage and promote greater environment ownership in Singapore. One effort is the use of smart technologies to share environmental data (e.g. air quality, public health and weather) with government agencies and the public. NEA contributed to the development of 86 environment datasets and 17 spatial datasets for the Singapore Government data hub, SG-Data/GeoSpace, for inter-agency sharing. These datasets include weather information such as air quality, weather forecast, heavy rain warning, climate change, location of recycling bins. It also contributed 75 datasets and 8 map layers to the Singapore Government’s one-stop portal service, www.data.gov.sg, for public use. Using smart phone technologies, NEA has co-created several mobile applications with private sector partners through crowd sourcing ideas from the public to promote greater environment ownership and provide real time information on environmental conditions.
