IWP Institute of Water Policy

IWP Institute of Water Policy

The Institute of Water Policy (IWP) at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy aims to enhance understanding of the social and economic dimensions of water governance and contribute to improved policy and practice in water management, with a focus on developing Asia and enlarging access to a safe, reliable water supply and a hygienic sanitation system through better water management and integration of water security in national policy-making. IWP undertakes independent research and engages in institutional and corporate partnerships to influence the discourse on water governance issues and make a difference in water governance and management. IWP was established in partnership with the Singapore Public Utilities Board (PUB) and receives funding from the PUB and Singapore’s Tote Board. The Institute’s research is also funded by a range of local partners including Sembcorp and Temasek Foundation; local and international government agencies such the National Environment Agency (NEA) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA); and international organizations such as the Asian Development Bank.
