Explore Singapore’s water dilemma and solutions together with Aquaporin Asia Deputy Manager Guofei Sun and Shane Allen Snyder, Professor & Executive Director of Nanyang Environment & Water Research Institute, part of Nanyang Technological University. Singapore is one of the most water-stressed countries in the world, a place where water is a matter of national security, as the island state doesn’t have access to natural water resources. Therefore, Singapore has to find alternative methods to provide its more than 5 million residents with clean water.
Snyder introduces Singapore’s four national water taps, highlights some of the innovative solutions the island state has developed to solve local water challenges, and points out how other countries can learn from the way Singapore has managed to turn their vulnerability into a strength.
Sun gives an insight into Aquaporin Asia’s focus areas and how they are contributing to making Singapore a model city for integrated water management, especially when it comes to reducing the energy consumption of water treatment.
