CATALOGUE OF MITIGATION STRATEGIES
Urban Heat Island (UHI) and Outdoor Thermal Comfort (OTC) can be addressed through a myriad of strategies. Cooling Singapore identified potential strategies and measures for reducing the Urban Heat Island (UHI) and improving the Outdoor Thermal Comfort (OTC) in Singapore.
The project team developed a comprehensive catalogue that contains 86 measures, grouped in seven clusters: vegetation, urban geometry, water features and bodies, materials and surfaces, shading, transport, and energy. Each measure describes its impact towards UHI and OTC, its applicability in the tropical climate, its integration into urban planning, and its current research status. The content of the catalogue is based on literature review and expert knowledge from various perspectives on urban design, transport, energy, build construction, and urban climatology.
