We have come a long way in our water sustainability efforts

With limited land to collect and store rainwater, Singapore faced droughts, floods and water pollution in the early years of nation building. These challenges inspired Singapore to strategise and seek innovative ideas, develop capabilities and secure a sustainable supply of water.


Singapore is internationally recognised as a model city for integrated water management and an emerging global hydrohub – a leading centre for business opportunities and expertise in water technologies.

Through the years, we have embarked on an integrated, effective and cost-efficient way to meet the nation’s water needs with investments in research and technology to treat, recycle and supply water.


We all have a part to play.

We believe everyone in Singapore has a stake in ensuring our water sustainability. Water is not just a necessary resource – it is an economic asset and an environmental treasure.
