Singapore

Singapore's water story is rather exceptional. Over a span of 50 years, the tiny island-state of Singapore, through the work of its national water agency (PUB) has surmounted its earlier challenges of polluted rivers, water shortages and widespread flooding to establish a highly efficient and sustainable water mangement system. This system had undergirded Singapore's development and prosperity, and transformed its water vulnerability into a strength.

The Netherlands and Singapore are both looking for international collaboration to address global water challenges. Both countries have shown significant interest in each other's methods, inclusing but nog limited to: water treatment, irrigation and land reclamation. In Singapore the Dutch water sector unites in the Singapore – Netherlands Water House (SNWH), the water committee of the Dutch Chamber of Commerce in Singapore.
