Nature Seminar Series. Cities in Nature Transforming Singapore into a City in Nature – Lena Chan

The talk a) showcases some cities that have incorporated biodiversity conservation successfully, b) shares how the National Parks Board of Singapore (NParks) implements its City in Nature vision and c) illustrates how NParks identifies problems, crafts specific problem statements, works with the scientific community to design research projects that seek nature-based solutions, interprets the data, translates the results to policies, operationalises the recommendations on the ground and devises evaluation and monitoring programmes – all in one government agency collaborating in an interdisciplinary manner and comprehensively with multi-governmental agencies, academic community, and the public (NGOs, citizen scientists, etc.).
