Singapore: Global Water Hub and Policy Leader
Singapore serves as a global leader in water management thanks to active support from its government. Despite facing the challenging environment of a densely populated island, the country has managed to make access to water universal, efficient, affordable and of high quality. However, the expected increase in population and industrial water usage, in conjunction with rising energy costs and the unpredictable negative impacts of climate change, it is necessary to develop more sustainable water management practices. Specifically, it is imperative to reduce per capita water consumption, which is significantly higher in Singapore compared to similar cities. Education and water pricing techniques, along with sustained scientific advancement, will allow Singapore to continue not only as a world leader in water management, but also as an international hub for commerce, transportation, finance, research and development.
