Temasek Foundation Water Leadership Programme (TFWLP)

Overview

Jointly developed by Temasek Foundation, the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore and PUB, Singapore’s national water agency.

While Asia is entering a new era of unprecedented growth and prosperity, innovative thinking is still required to address a critical health and sustainability issue that is hampering its progress: the growing water and sanitation needs of 3.7 billion people.

The Temasek Foundation Water Leadership Programme (TFWLP), developed in collaboration between Temasek Foundation, the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore and PUB, Singapore’s national water agency, has brought together a distinguished team of academics and policymakers to offer a 12-day Executive Programme to address these challenges. The programme is designed for water leaders operating in Asian emerging markets that are adapting to the increasing water and sanitation demands placed on them. It aims to expose participants to the best practices in water utilities governance, practical guidance on managing water utilities effectively, and potential strategies to deal with existing and future challenges. Conducted in a state-of-the-art classroom setting; the programme will use a combination of lectures and case studies to enhance learning effectiveness. Participants will also have the opportunity to go on site visits, which would provide first-hand experience on how Singapore has dealt with challenges in water resource management. In addition, case studies and panel discussions among practitioners will be incorporated into the curriculum to enrich the participants learning experience throughout the course of the programme.
