About This Book

Water is more than a basic human necessity in Singapore. Its supply was a strategic collaboration between two British colonies and, later, formed the core of the two independent nations' strategic relationship. This book traces the story of how Singapore was almost totally dependent on the Malay Peninsula to quench its daily thirst and how it has now become almost self-sufficient. Water is also a catalyst for a nation's economic development, and lies at the heart of a city's living environment. This book details the transformation of the water landscape made possible by judicious long-term planning alongside technology and policy innovation. It ends with a view of the nation's future opportunities, both economic and strategic, that have been created as a result of this transformation.
