Prime Minister Lee’s personal and continuing lifelong interest on water ensured Singapore’s urban water management became the envy of the world. National leaders everywhere are interested in water only when there is a drought, flood or natural hazard. The moment the crisis disappears, water vanishes from political agenda. Lee is the only leader who was consistently interested in water throughout his entire political career. This has not been replicated in history.
