Singapore has a scarcity in resources, meaning the country has to rely on others while trying to build a sustainable living for ourselves. We regularly import products from other countries, such as fresh food, with an increasing trend (Agri-Food & Veterinarian Authority of Singapore, 2012). We too, also import water from Malaysia, under two bilateral agreements. Singapore is now into its second agreement, which expires in 2061 (PUB, 2013). Singapore also has its method of conducting a sustainable living, such as setting up catchment areas for collecting rainwater. Singapore has a total of 17 reservoirs for the purpose of collecting rainwater (PUB, 2012). Rainwater is collected through an extensive network of drains, canals, rivers, storm-water collection ponds and reservoirs before it is treated for daily and safe consumption (PUB 2013).
