A biennial international award launched in 2010, the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize is one that celebrates the achievement of creating a liveable, vibrant and sustainable urban community.

With the aim of finding urban solutions that are easily replicable across cities, this prize recognises an emphasis on practicality and cost effectiveness of the ideas and solutions implemented.

While the recipient of this year’s Lee Kuan Yew World City prize, Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City, was unable to attend the Lee Kuan Yew World Cities and Singapore Water Lecture, Mr Adrian Benepe, Commissioner of the Department of Parks & Recreation was present at the Marina Bay Sands Grand Ballroom.

Also in attendance were Professor Kishore Mahbubani, Dean, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and the recipient of the Lee Kuan Yew World Water Prize 2012, Professor Mark Van Loosdrecht.

The winners of the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize and World Water Prize will each be presented with a certificate, a gold medallion and a cash prize of S$300,000.
