Last call for nominations for the Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize 2018

This is the final call to submit deserving nominees for the prestigious Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize 2018 before the 31st of July 2017, Monday, at 6pm GMT.

The Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize honours and acknowledges outstanding contributions by organisations or individuals who develop or apply innovative technologies, policies, or programmes which are aimed at solving the global water challenge while also benefitting humanity.

This international award is one of the highlights of the biannual Singapore International Water Week (SIWW), which will be held from the 8th to the 12th of July 2018, and named after Singapore’s first Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew, whose foresight and leadership allowed Singapore to achieve a sustainable water supply. Since its introduction in 2008, the Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize has become recognised in the international water arena as the premier Water Prize.

The Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize Laureate will receive S$300,000, a certificate for his or her achievement, and a gold medallion that will be presented during the award ceremony in SIWW 2018.

Additionally, the Laureate will also speak at the Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize Lecture held during SIWW 2018, and share their thoughts and experiences with an international audience of policymakers, industry experts, and heads of international organisations and academia.
