ACTIONABLE KNOWLEDGE FOR POLICY MAKERS
The interdisciplinary project Cooling Singapore (CS) has the goal of developing strategies to reduce excessive temperatures due to the urban heat island effect (UHI). Achieving this goal will improve the quality of life of Singaporeans, but will require a deeper understanding of the causes of UHI and the opportunities for reducing it. CS involves collaboration among scientists from four research institutions (SEC, TUM-CREATE, SMART and NUS), and also partners from government agencies and the private sector. The anticipated outcomes include a roadmap with policy guidelines and a simulation tool prototype aimed at making Singapore cooler and more liveable. Learn more
