National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan
Principles of Singapore’s National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan
There is an increasing global awareness of the role of biodiversity conservation in improving the quality of life in cities. "Conserving Our Biodiversity" provides a framework that uses an integrated approach to the conservation of our natural heritage. It showcases Singapore's commitment to the conservation and sustainable use of its biodiversity resources.
Our aim is to create an urban biodiversity conservation model that champions environmental sustainability in an urban setting with well-endowed natural heritage.
The following principles guide its implementation:
- The biodiversity resources of Singapore are our natural heritage and should be conserved for future generations.
- Considerations on biodiversity and ecosystems are factored into the national planning process.
- A balanced view is adopted of national priorities and international and regional obligations.
