Singapore Chronicles: Water

PART OF Singapore Chronicles SERIES
Publisher: Straits Times Press
  • Description
  • About the Series
  • 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.

  • To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s Independence, the Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times Press jointly launched the Singapore Chronicles series in 2015.

    This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore. Covering a wide range of subjects, from the philosophical to the mundane, the fundamental to the practical, these Singapore Chronicles titles include Constitution, Presidency, Housing, Transport, Demography, CPF, Sports and Food. Each volume in this series will serve as a primer on the subject.

    Written by leading experts, they will focus on key aspects of the subject, providing analysis as well as a historical account. Readers will gain an insight into what makes Singapore tick and also why it has chosen certain “paths un-trodden”.
