Our team has worked consistently on producing actionable knowledge that will result in real change. Part of this means involving agency representatives to start the conversation on how new research on the Urban Heat Island effect (UHI) and Outdoor Thermal Comfort (OTC) in Singapore can eventually translate into policy.

So far, we have put together a UHI Task Force, written two position papers on the economic and health impacts of UHI, written a guide to the key personnel in Singapore that work on UHI analysis and mitigation aspects, and conducted workshops bringing together researchers, agency representatives and industry representatives.
