Objectives

The Climate Impact Science Research (CISR) Programme will utilise the latest climate projections to understand climate change impact in five key priority areas - sea level rise; water resource and flood management; biodiversity and food security; human health and energy, and cross-cutting research to help bridge science-policy translation. The CISR Programme, managed by the Climate Science Research Programme Office (CSRPO), will be jointly delivered by local research institutes and Institutes of Higher Learning. The programme will contribute to our endeavours towards coordinating climate science research and capability building efforts under the Climate Science Research Masterplan to inform climate adaptation through underpinning climate science.


Research Areas

There are five broad R&D areas under the CISR Programme:
i. Sea Level Rise: Understand sea-level rise and extreme sea-level events around Singapore and the wider region (includes new areas of research identified outside of RIE2020 National Sea Level Programme);
ii. Water Resource & Flood Management: Understand how changing rainfall and temperature patterns will impact our water supplies, urban runoffs and water resources management;
iii. Biodiversity & Food Security: Understand the impact of changing rainfall and temperature patterns on Singapore’s urban greenery, terrestrial biodiversity and food security;
iv. Impact of Warming Trends on Human Health & Energy Sector: Understand the impact of climate change on the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect, human health (heat stress) and the energy sector (efficiency of power generation and supply); and
v. Cross-cutting areas: Understand the application of climate change science information across climate scenarios in a risk-based assessment framework.


Current Grant Calls

NEA will provide the details on the launch of the grant call and submission in early 2023.
