Our Water, Our Future

In 2015, the Water Resources Institute (WRI) ranked Singapore as one of the most water-stressed countries in the world. It thinks that, by 2040, Singapore would be one of eight countries in the world most vulnerable to disruptions in water supply. Water planners in PUB are not in the least surprised by the
WRI’s conclusion, although I suspect that even a reasonably wellinformed Singaporean would find it incredible. Because the notion that our water taps could run dry is just inconceivable to most Singaporeans alive today.
