According to this paper, Asian countries with large populations concentrated in coastal cities are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts, which can adversely affect water resources. Singapore has been hailed for its progressive water policies and practices, which were developed to overcome its natural resource disadvantage (limited resource base) and to achieve self-sufficiency. This paper evaluates the contributions of Singapore"s water policies and practices to climate change adaptation, and examines whether Singapore can support the development of adaptation strategies in the water sector for other similarly situated cities in vulnerable countries.
