Our Key Programmes

Communication, Education, and Public Awareness

Increasing awareness and understanding of biodiversity among policy and decision-makers, as well as the general public, is expected to generate wider support for the conservation of biodiversity in ASEAN. By enhancing understanding of biodiversity, policy and decision-makers are expected to give more support to biodiversity conservation efforts through more biodiversity-friendly policies, programmes, and projects. On the other hand, increasing public awareness on the value of biodiversity will result in behavioural change with more citizens taking a more active role in conserving biodiversity as well as making biodiversity conservation a way of life.

The ACB will continue to enhance public and leadership awareness on the values of biodiversity and the need for its conservation and sustainable management through better communication, education, and public awareness.
