begin to urbanise, there will be vital opportunities and challenges in managing the various
environmental issues faced by every modern city. We are pleased to partner H+K Strategies on the first occasion that World Cities Summit, Singapore International Water Week and
CleanEnviro Summit Singapore are being held concurrently under one roof. Our collective aim
is to highlight the fact that waste management effort must be a core feature of every urban
