SDG 12 : Responsible consumption and production
Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
The concepts of land use development including grouping the activity area in the same area, increasing the land use density by preservation of open spaces at least 70 percent of the total area, classifying the area in each activity into sub-block system and identifying important green spaces to preserve as a lung of the university and activity areas for the community.
Wetland area is a valuable ecosystem providing food and livelihoods to organism, supporting rich biodiversity, and storing more carbon than any other ecosystems. Many wet land areas in the world are currently threated by human activities. As the University values conservation of the University ecosystem, wetland areas are conserved for mitigating drought and flooding events, water supply, and recreation area. Salaya campus has been covered by 36.4% of water body besides forest and planted vegetation. Many wetland areas in the University such as ponds, artificial canals, and irrigation canals are conserved and protected to be a habitat for at least 54 species of aquatic plants.
