The Institute of Water Policy at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy has secured a S$5 million grant to conduct policy-relevant research for PUB, Singapore's national water agency, over the next five years. The grant was formalised by Mr Ng Joo Hee, Chief Executive, PUB and Professor Danny Quah, Dean and Li Ka Shing Professor in Economics, at an IWP Research Seminar on Monday, 7 May.
