International non government organization Conservation International (CI) is expanding its presence in Singapore.
Conservation International – Singapore (CI-S) will be the strategic center for CI’s Asia-Pacific programs, and act as an outreach and engagement hub for corporations, governments and individuals in the region.
CI-S was established two years ago and launched the Asia-Pacific Business and Sustainability Council (BSC) in Singapore last March. The BSC now has 13 corporate members, and has met to discuss business sustainability, carbon and climate change amongst other topics.
CI’s Asia-Pacific Field Division team will also relocate to Singapore. The division oversees the strategy and operations of field offices in Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Philippines, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia and Samoa.
CI’s work in Asia-Pacific includes watershed protection in China, Fiji and Cambodia, forest reforestation in Indonesia and the Philippines, and marine conservation in the Coral Triangle and the Pacific Islands.
