Abstract: The looming of an environmental crisis triggered by rapid urbanization and industrialization has made countries around the world to look closely at the issue of sustainable development. With the phenomenon of rapid urbanization in newly emerging economies, and with the spectre of ecological disaster looming, the conflict between natural ecology and urbanization is now of global concern to everyone. Singapore, though a small country, is a key consumer of resources and energy as well as the producer of waste. Its responsibility for protecting the environment covers not only in the way resources are extracted, manufactured, used and disposed of within Singapore but also extends to those numerous externalities relating to the demand for raw materials and manufactured goods from adjoining regions. This dissertation seeks to review and assess Singapore as a sustainable city, based on the theses of Herman E. Daly, Paul Hawken and Amory & L. Hunter Lovins as the benchmark for sustainable development.
