National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan
As a party to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), Singapore has an obligation to develop its own set of strategy and action plans to conserve biodiversity. In 2009, Singapore’s first National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP) was developed. The NBSAP is Singapore’s Master Plan for all conservation efforts and sets out the strategies and the actions that Singapore proposes to take in order to conserve our biodiversity.
Singapore’s 5th National Report
The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) invites parties to submit regular reports to compile a global biodiversity outlook. In doing so, key issues and priorities are identified on a global scale. Singapore had previously submitted four national reports to the CBD. The 5th National Report due in 2014 seeks to track our national progress in biodiversity conservation, and thereby, plan for subsequent implementation of targets and identify areas for improvement.
Sustainable Singapore Blue Print
Singapore, being a small island-state, has to strike a balance between its economic growth and quality living environment for its people. The Sustainable Singapore Blue Print was developed and released in 2009. It seeks to grow our city in a way that:
- Is efficient: we develop with less resources and waste
- Is clean: we develop without polluting our environment
- Is green: we develop while preserving greenery, waterways and our natural heritage
