User’s Manual for the Singapore Index on Cities’ Biodiversity

- N/A

The ninth meeting of the Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP9) in Bonn, Germany, recognized the role of cities and local authorities and the fact that the implementation of national biodiversity strategies and action plans (NBSAPs) requires the close collaboration with subnational levels of government. In the light of the above, the Minister for National Development of Singapore, Minister Mah Bow Tan, proposed the establishment of an index to measure biodiversity in cities, at the high level segment of COP9, on 27 May 2008. Following up on his announcement, the first expert workshop on the development of the City Biodiversity Index (CBI) took place from 10 to 12 February 2009 at the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
