The Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize honours outstanding contributions by individuals or organisations towards solving the world’s water challenges by developing or applying innovative technologies, policies or programmes which benefit humanity.
This prestigious international award is named after Singapore’s first Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, whose foresight and leadership has enabled Singapore to attain a sustainable water supply.
The Lee Kuan Yew water prize has already been won twice by Dutch representatives: professor Gatze Lettinga from Wageningen University (2008) and professor Mark van Loosdrecht from the Technical University of Delft (2012). Lets hope that a Dutch participant will win it again haha!
