National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP)
"Conserving Our Biodiversity" maps out Singapore's master plan for biodiversity. It aims to promote biodiversity conservation, keeping in mind that as a densely populated country with no hinterland, we would have to adopt a pragmatic approach to conservation and develop unique solutions to our challenges. It intends to establish both policy frameworks and specific measures to ensure better planning and co-ordination in the sustainable use, management and conservation of our biodiversity.
Biodiversity conservation cannot be achieved with only efforts from one agency. A holistic approach must be adopted and the inputs of various public sector agencies and nature groups have been taken into consideration in the preparation of this document. The master plan also fulfils our regional and international commitments, primarily the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) 1. 1The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is an international agreement established by the United Nations. The CBD currently has 191 Parties. Singapore signed the CBD on 12 June 1992 and subsequently became a Party on 21 December 1995.
