Workshop on strategy assessment

The workshop aims to provide an overview on the activities and findings of the Cooling Singapore project during the last 12 months. Especially, the results of the dialogues with agencies will be presented, together with outcomes of the thermal comfort mitigation strategies assessment. Furthermore, two key experts have been invited to amplify their experience on involving urban climate in the city planning. Finally, the definitions of the roadmap to mitigate the Urban Heat Island (UHI) and improve the Outdoor Thermal Comfort (OTC) in Singapore will be presented. All in all, the workshop will serve as a platform to push forward awareness and discussion on UHI and OTC in Singapore from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Workshop on mitigation strategies 

The workshop aimed to start the collaboration between the UHI task force members and the Cooling Singapore research team. This first workshop provided an overview on the activities planned by the Cooling Singapore project. The catalogue of strategies was presented and discussed together with government agencies. Also, the direction of the modelling work for the selected test areas was presented.

A catalogue of strategies for cooling Singapore 

The catalogue of strategies aims to give a comprehensive overview of strategies and measures that are available to mitigate UHI and improve OTC. The catalogue contains 86 measures, grouped in 7 clusters. 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. With this catalogue, we hope to support the urban planning and design process with actionable knowledge.

Mitigation strategies survey

The Cooling Singapore (CS) team asked scientist and researchers from different fields of expertise to complete a 10 - 15 minutes questionnaire and identify strategies to reduce Urban Heat Island (UHI) and improve Outdoor Thermal Comfort (OTC) in Singapore. 

Assessment models/tools survey

The Cooling Singapore (CS) team asked scientist and researchers from different fields of expertise to complete a 10 minutes questionnaire and identify simulation models/tools to assess the microclimate impact of strategies to reduce Urban Heat Island (UHI) and improve Outdoor Thermal Comfort (OTC) in Singapore.
