More rain, higher sea level for S'pore, suggest climate science findings

SINGAPORE - The Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change on Friday released findings that suggest significant changes in rainfall patterns and increased global sea-level rise by 2100.

In a warmer world, extreme rainfall over wet tropical regions will very likely become more intense and more frequent.

The Singapore Government will contextualise the global findings and study their impact on Singapore and its people, with continual efforts being made to review and adjust plans.

Locally, analysis by the Centre for Climate Research Singapore shows that there has been more frequent and intense short-duration heavy rainfall over the past few decades.
