International development is primarily driven by the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which include efforts to end poverty, fight inequalities, and tackle climate change. Through the establishment of the Singapore Cooperation Programme in 1992, Singapore has taken concrete steps to share its development experience and provide technical assistance in areas of water and sanitation, sustainability, and climate action.
