Nature Meets Numbers: The Singapore Biodiversity Accounting Metric

Event posted by Coline Laurent
Thursday, 7 December 2023 - 15:00 to 16:00 (Europe/Brussels)

This event is organised as part of the Connecting Nature Enterprise Platform, the world’s largest community of nature-based enterprises.

What impact does a development or construction project have on nature and biodiversity in a local area? And how can we measure and quantify that?

Biodiversity expert, Ash Welch, is at the forefront of a remarkable tool called the Singapore Biodiversity Accounting Metric that addresses this very problem. As a Senior Consultant with AECOM, he will introduce the tool and explore how it can be used in real world projects, going beyond the theory and making a real impact on how we can develop in a more nature-friendly way.

Who should attend? Civil Engineers, Architects, Urban Planners, City Managers, Biodiversity Officers, Ecologists, Developers, nature-based solutions professionals and anybody interested in preserving and restoring nature in our cities and beyond.
