Professional Sharing Series (PSS)

Launched in February 2004, PSS aims to promote a dynamic exchange of environmental knowledge between NEA and the public sector, as well as industries, academics, and businesses. PSS is a knowledge-sharing platform where SEI periodically brings in professionals across various fields to share their expertise and perspectives on environmental issues. Topics that have been covered range from emerging environmental technologies and management approaches, to good environmental practices and environmental awareness.

In supporting NEA’s strategic thrust of profiling and sharing Singapore’s environmental expertise, SEI actively seeks to foster environmental capacity building and development on a regional and international scale.  Besides facilitating bilateral technical exchanges, SEI regularly organises technical assistance training programmes for the ASEAN region as well as for small island developing states.

SEI does this in partnership with international organisations such as:

  • Asia Development Bank (ADB)
  • Asian Environmental Compliance and Enforcement Network (AECEN)
  • British High Commission
  • Cities Development Initiative for Asia (CDIA)
  • Clean Air Initiative-Asia (CAI-Asia)
  • Colombo Plan Secretariat

  • French Embassy
  • Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF)
  • Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)
  • Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA)
  • Royal Norwegian Embassy

  • United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
  • United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO)
  • World Health Organisation (WHO)

SEI’s international programmes showcase Singapore’s experience in maintaining a clean and sustainable environment. They have enabled foreign delegates to gain practical knowledge and tools in applying sustainable solutions back home.  Since SEI’s inception, it has conducted more than 520 programmes for over 10,000 government officials. These were mostly done under the auspices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ (MFA) Singapore Cooperation Programme (SCP) training framework.
