About this book

In a small city-state where land is considered a scarce resource, the tension between urban development and biodiversity conservation, which often involves protecting areas of forest from being cleared for development, has always been present. In recent years, the issue of biodiversity conservation has become more prominent in Singapore, both for the government and its citizens. This study documents the evolution of Singapore's biodiversity conservation efforts and the on-going paradigm shifts in biodiversity conservation as Singapore moves from a Garden City to a City in a Garden.
