Singapore's plans to tackle climate change will include nature-based solutions such as restoring its mangrove areas and planting thousands of trees.

Among the strategies being examined were empoldering, a land reclamation technique, along Singapore's eastern coast, as well as reclaiming a series of offshore islands there. Land in Singapore changed from being a net absorber of carbon in 2012 to a net emitter in 2014, as forests made way for settlements.
