Throughout its nation-building journey, Singapore’s efforts to manage water resources, protect natural landscapes, and cultivate vegetation have been crucial elements underpinning the city’s liveability. Ranging from infrastructure systems to social history, Professor Peter G. Rowe will share how these unique strategies and effective practices have transformed the city into a “clean and green” powerhouse, and how this puts the city in good stead to respond to disruptions resulting from climate change.
