Singapore has launched a $23.5-million programme to examine the long-term impact of climate change on the island state. The programme will fund studies to evaluate climate risks and implications. It will also help find ways to respond and adapt to future scenarios and their impact on sea levels, water and food resources, and health. Announcing the five-year programme at the Sea Level 2022 Conference, Sustainability and the Environment Minister Grace Fu said assessing how higher temperatures could impact harvests would allow Singapore to strengthen its food resilience.
