Mott MacDonald appointed on Phase 2 of Singapore's Second National Climate Change Study

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Singapore’s National Environment Agency to examine the impacts of climate change on the country’s energy and telecommunication infrastructure. This project forms part of Phase 2 of the Singapore Government’s Second National Climate Change Study. 

Phase 1 of the study saw the Meteorological Service Singapore’s Centre for Climate Research Singapore and the United Kingdom’s Met Office Hadley Centre produce climate projections for the country and wider region up to the year 2100. Building on this, Phase 2 will examine the impacts of climate change on areas such as water resources and drainage, biodiversity and greenery, network infrastructure and building infrastructure. As part of this phase, Mott MacDonald will recommend adaptation measures and strategies for energy and telecommunication network infrastructure and operations. 

Chris Preston, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “Singapore has been hit by several cases of extreme weather in recent years, including floods in 2013 and a dry spell in 2014. Our research will contribute towards efforts to protect the country from future extreme weather events. Mott MacDonald was appointed on this project on the basis of the team’s technical quality of methodology and their careful consideration of the challenges involved in the project, particularly surrounding model uncertainty.”
