Green economy the way to go

CM Musa Aman claims the green economy is a win-win arrangement which benefits both the environment and the economy through well managed utilization of the natural environment which will in turn allows the conservation of the natural resources.

Based on the UNEP report, an average of 13 million hectares of tropical forests are disappearing annually, which equals to six billion tonnes of carbon dioxide being released to the atmosphere.

Sabah has begun to diversify its economy to promote downstream processing of crude palm oil plantations covering 1.5 million hectares of land. Other similar sectors will also focus on downstreaming those such as oil and gas, tourism and coal-free energy.

The economic transformation programme has identified 56 early point projects to be taken over by the private sector which would generate about RM25 billion worth of investments, and creating 200,000 job opportunities, in the mean time, it would also raise the state's gross national income per capita to USD10,000 by 2020.

The UNEP strategy on forest is in line with the concept of sustainable forest management (SFM) that is practiced in Sabah. We generate knowledge of multiple forest uses, engaging initiatives to protect forests, adopt fiscal and economic policies and mobilizing public and private investment for our forests.

saya yakin kerajaan negeri mampu membawa lebih banyak pelaburan ke negeri ini bagi membuka lebih banyak peluang pekerjaan sekaligus meningkatkan pendapatan negeri tanpa merisikokan sumber alam semulajadi melalui pendekatan ekonomi hijau..
