Issues... Methods Study Area Data Collection Analysis Repetto (cited in Hanna, 2012), the main
objective of sustainable development opposes
policies and practices that are used to support
current living standards through the depletion
of the productive base, which includes natural
resources, and result in greater risks and poorer
prospects for the future generation. Visitor Center: Main Source

Quantitative Research (Internet, brochures & journal articles) Method of Data Analysis Situation Analysis - Explains the strength and weaknesses of the operation (Weaver, 2008) Conserve, Create, Sustain & Enhance the green infrastructure.
To be the first park that strives in educating the public on tools and tips for gardening as well as the relevant conservation methods.
Guided tours, hands-on workshops & garden cafe where they pass educational information though experience. LAC process provides a systematic feedback on effectiveness of management actions employed & alerting them to the need of more rigorous efforts. (Pigram, 2006). LAC Process Identification of issues (Field Observation) Stankey et al., 1985 (cited in Pigram, 2006) Define and describe opportunity zones and their desired future conditions. Developed Zone (Contains resources of highest resilience)
- Areas with major visitor & administrative facilities.
- Opportunities for social experiences.
- Resources are modified for visitor & park operational needs. Pedestrian Zone
- High usage of well-defined trail corridor.
- Access to prime park features.
- Paved trails with small interpretive structures. Sensitive Resource Protection Zone
- Intensive conservation & research activities.
- Minimal visitor access. : Define suitable indicators (Source: United Nations, 2009).
Use of renewable resources (as a percentage of total fuel usage)
Amount of water recycled (as a percentage of total water consumed Identify alternative opportunity
zone allocations/modifications Modification of existing buildings with energy conservation
methods not only saves the environment, it is also one of
the most cost effective ways to reduce operating expenses, & improving the environment along the way is added benefit.
This can be done through investments in energy efficient
strategies, as well as lighting and control systems (Annon., 2012). Management actions for each alternative opportunity zone. 10 % Challenge by PUB Singapore
Water Efficiency Fund (WEF)
Installation of occupancy and daylight
sensors. Specify measurable standards for resource conditions. Organization that adopt a systematic approach to water reduction typically achieve a 20-50% decrease in water usage.
(Envirowise, n.d.) Implement actions & monitor conditions impact assessment
water audit Introduction of multimedia Improvement to park concept In order for effective interpretation to occur, the following factors are needed:- The impact of water scarcity is an issue that has to be tackled now, even before government legislation. (Singh, 2009). Energy is required for potable water and wastewater treatment and transport, so reducing the amount of water consumed and discharged will help to lower the energy needed. (Tay, 2009). Resource management in terms of water & energy consumption. Eco-efficiency indicators (Farsari, 2000): - Inter-disciplinary project team.
- Public involvement.
- Development of park purpose, themes
and significance. - Audio Tours.
