Preliminary Assessment of Singapore's Environmental Law

The Singapore Constitution does not contain any provisions on the environment. Neither does Singapore have a framework law on environmental protection and management. There is no mandatory environmental impact assessment (EIA) system laid out in legislation. The present scheme of environmental management in Singapore is scattered throughout numerous Acts and Regulations. EIAs are required on an ad hoc basis at the discretion of the ENV. There has not been much judicial pronouncement or comment on environmental matters - in fact, environmental litigation is almost unknown in Singapore.
