The Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize is a biennial international award that honours outstanding achievements and contributions to the creation of liveable, vibrant and sustainable urban communities around the world. The Prize is awarded to cities and recognises their key leaders and organisations for displaying foresight, good governance and innovation in tackling the many urban challenges faced, to bring about social, economic and environmental benefits in a holistic way to their communities.
The Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize is named after Singapore’s first Prime Minister.

Under his leadership, the adoption of strategic land use, transport and environmental policies and programmes have helped Singapore to develop into a liveable city with a high quality living environment, in tandem with rapid economic growth.
The Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize is co-organised by the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore (URA) and the Centre for Liveable Cities (CLC).
