EDITOR'S LETTER
 

Water is an essential part of all activities we do in daily life, however sometimes we may take water for granted and 'forget' to appreciate it.

APBN's July issue features water technologies and management, in conjunction with Singapore International

Water Week (SIWW) which will be happening from July 10-14, 2016.

We feature interesting water-related articles and interviews in our Features, Columns and Spotlights section. To find out how Singapore overcomes water scarcity problems using innovations in water technology, check out PUB's article on tech innovations (in Features); as well as, H2O: Managing our Water and Technology (in Columns) to glean insight into Singapore's '4 National Taps' strategy in sustaining water supply.

In Dr. Ariel Dinar's article (Water Policy Response to Water Scarcity and Future Climate Change Impacts), he shared that an effective policy will allow a country to cope with water scarcity and manage its water resources sustainably. This means that the economic performance of a country is not only dependent on the abundance of water resources, but also on the water policies implemented to cope with the problems.

You may have never thought of what would happen to you if you had no clean water to drink, but millions of people out there still have no access to clean, drinkable water, according to World Health Organisation. We all need clean drinkable water to stay hydrated, healthy and to sustain our life. Let us pique your interest in the The Drinkable BookTM: A Book You Wouldn't Mind Getting Wet. The Drinkable BookTM is a creative purification technology that uses 'pages of a book' to filter water.

We also cover some news about GE Healthcare's Cell Culture Media Facility in Singapore, and also Takeda Pharmaceuticals' Emerging Market Business Unit in Spotlights; we wrote about the burden of thrombosis-related diseases, comparing different anticoagulant treatments such as warfarin (VKAs) and Rivaroxaban (NOACs).

We hope you enjoy reading APBN and let us journey with you on growing your knowledge.

Thank you.

Carmen, Jia Wen Loh
