16 About CLC Copyright © Centre for Liveable Cities The Centre for Liveable Cities (CLC) was set up in 2008 based on a strategic blueprint developed by Singapore’s Inter-Ministerial Committee on Sustainable Development. The Centre’s mission is to distil, create and share knowledge on liveable and sustainable cities. CLC distils key learning points from Singapore’s experiences over the last half-century, while creating knowledge to address emerging challenges. It also shares knowledge with, and learns from, other cities and experts. CLC receives guidance from its Advisory Board, comprising senior fi gures from academia, industry and the public sector. A high-level panel of Distinguished Advisors - comprising prominent former politicians and senior civil servants - contributes to the intellectual development of the Centre. CLC works closely with its Stakeholder Agencies - representing Singapore’s urban planning, governance and development expertise – to integrate their knowledge. CLC Panel of Experts are domain experts with technical knowledge and expertise that CLC will tap for capability development and future consultancy projects. The Centre operates as part of the Ministry of National Development, and comprises a dynamic CLC team of offi cers from diverse disciplines and backgrounds. Guided by the CLC Framework for Liveable and sustainable Cities, the Centre works across three main areas - Research, Capability Development, and Promotion.
