Singapore's Positive Water Consumption Future


water sustainability

Singapore is renowned for its use of innovative technology to boost sustainability. The entire city operates as one huge rainwater basin, proving it to be a world leader in strategies that increase both water security and resilience. Singapore has a set target of reducing its water consumption to 130 l/p/d by 2030 which they should be able to go way beyond with continued initiatives.


The city has implemented innovative hydraulic engineering strategies to reduce reliance on imported water. Including greywater recycling, the protection of urban rainwater catchments as well as the use of estuaries as freshwater reservoirs, and desalination. There is also a focus on responsive legislation, behavioural water pricing, public education, as well as research and development into efficient water management.


The Green Plan

 

The Singapore Green Plan 2030 seeks to encourage a national agenda on sustainable development. Formed in February 2021, The Green Plan sets concrete targets for the next 10 years, showing commitment to the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and Paris Agreement as well as achieving net zero emissions by 2050.


In April 2006, Singapore initiated the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) Programme. Its objective was to enhance the relationship between people and water, promoting greater awareness and appreciation of this vital resource. Through this initiative, PUB has reimagined reservoirs, rivers, and canals, to become vibrant community spaces with recreational facilities. This has contributed to Singapore's reputation as a flourishing City of Gardens and Water, with over 100 potential sites earmarked for the program's expansion by 2030. The city is already reaping the economic rewards of the tourism that has been attracted by this creative infrastructure.


Singapore encourages community involvement in managing water demand. To secure a sustainable water future, the Public Utilities Board has introduced clever methods of public involvement. Singapore promotes water conservation through a scheme that labels the water efficiency of household products and adds tax on top of water bills for those with high domestic consumption. This makes it a great role model for other countries that need to reduce water consumption rates as well as ensure sufficient supplies.
