The ASE serves as a knowledge bank, providing information, policy advice and input to stake holders, based on our faculty’s in-depth understanding of environmental processes.  Much of our research is conducted in South-east Asia including Singapore, which enables us to make specific predictions relevant for this region.

ASE professors regularly serve as expert commentators to media, including Straits Times, Channel News Asia and the BBC.
