Singapore -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/19/2021 -- Water scarcity affects numerous areas of the globe and today it still remains one of the largest global risks and challenges in terms of potential impact over the next decade as the Earth's population continues to shift towards urbanisation. Furthermore, the World Economic Forum (WEF) has indicated that 97% of the globe's water supply is salt water, whereas the additional 0.3% is fresh water located across lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, and swamps. According to the WEF all other water is held in glaciers or underneath the ground. Water resource management, recycling and conservation solutions have previously and still remain an integral sector when it comes to human well-being, health and global developments. Singapore is considered to be one of the most water-stressed countries in the world. It is heavily dependent on rainfall due to the lack of natural water resources, and limited land is available for water storage facilities.
As the global demand for clean water continues to rise, so too does the interest in alternatives to conventional water conservation and purification. One method, NEWater, has already been put in place in Singapore for over a decade. Singapore lacks natural fresh water resources due to its land scarcity. To fight the problem of water scarcity, in 1998, Singapore began the Water Reclamation Study. This project was meant to find whether purified recycled water, or NEWater, could be used to meet Singapore's water needs. In 2002, Singapore set up two NEWater plants. Today, it supplies water to 40% of Singapore's population. The significance water plays in employment cannot be overlooked. UNESCO estimates three out of four jobs that make up the global workforce are either heavily or moderately dependent on water. Director-general, Irina Bokova, argues that "water and jobs are inextricably linked on various levels, whether we look at them from an economic, environmental or social perspective".
