Intensifying the Green Effort in Sabah

The state government  of Sabah, Malaysia is set to intensify its green effort and bring more value to its conservation efforts in the state. The effort, which is envisioned in the "Heart of Borneo" initiative, was mooted by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in recognition of the importance of the island of Borneo and its biodiversity.

Sabah Chief Minister, Musa Aman stated that the ongoing implementation of several key green programmes on the state's four hectares of land had benefited the economic and environmental efforts in the states.

Through the government's Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) programme, Sabah not only manage to protect the state's forest and biodiversity, but also would help realize its green economy ambitions. 

According to Musa Aman, the SFM comprised the United Nations (UN) Environment Programme strategy that guided countries on the contributions of forests to a green economy. Musa added that the SFM is being practised in the Deramakot Forest Reserves, which has been certified as a well-managed forest under the Forest Stewardship Council certification scheme. 

Another success story that worth to mention is the Ulu Segama- Malua Project, covering some 240,000ha of production forest reserves designated for natural forest management and orang utan conservation.
