Transcript of Singapore Malaysia Water Conflict

By Doo Woong, Nick, Jason Singapore Malaysia River Conflict -Singapore and Malaysia have a long standing feud over the supply of water. The source of this conflict is economic and political.
-Malaysia feels that Singapore is not paying enough for its water.

-Malaysia often threatens to cut of Singapore's water supply if Singapore does not meet Malaysia's political demands. Singapore seeks it's own water source to be freed of Malaysia's political threats. Characteristics Who is affected Where/when/how has the conflict turned violent What is being done to alleviate tension in this conflict? Singapore has developed a costly way to sustain themselves with water. They have developed this strategy called "The Four Tap Strategy."
By 2010, Singapore had built a desalination plant and a new water barrage to help increase their source of raw water. They also built five NEWater plants. What are the future prospects for conflict or cooperation? Singapore aims to be self sufficient before their agreement with Malaysia ends in 2061.
They plan to achieve this by utilizing the Four Tap Strategy.
NEWater plans to supply 50% of Singapore's water by 2060.
Singapore's self sustain will allow immunity from Malaysia's threats to end Singapore's water supply. Singapore:
- Loses money from selling water back to Johor.
- Bigger loss if NEWater was used as substitute.
-Risk of War. (Singapore Armed Forces) Malaysia has threatened Singapore politically with threats to cut off their water supply. Malaysia has this certain power over Singapore because they can cut off their main source of water at any given moment.
Military action could be put into effect is the situation is not resolved properly.
