KUALA LUMPUR, June 23 (Bernama) -- The Improving Connectivity: Central Forest Spine (IC-CFS) project will be readjusted according to a new strategy and detailed planning in an effort to conserve the forests in Peninsular Malaysia.
National project director Datuk Zahari Ibrahim said the management plan will have a positive impact on forest habitat in the area.
He said the matter would encourage the absorption of carbon in line with Malaysia’s stand at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP-26) to support the reduction of greenhouse gasses (GHG) by 2050.
"Forests need to be managed sustainable and continuously to increase its ecological protection and to maintain the economy and income sources.
“This can be seen through the IC-CFS project in reducing wildlife and forestry crime as well as a pragmatic financing plan for every state,” he said in a statement today.
The statement also said that several matters were being planned, including the addition of areas for gazettement, the development of equipment to monitor biodiversity and the preparation of ecosystem services in selected states.
The project is aiming to use the Sustainable Financing Plan in Pahang to identify new income sources from the forest ecosystem services that are capable of boosting state revenue and to protect forest resources and its biodiversity better.
The IC-CFS last year focused on efforts to boost enforcement at state and federal levels to reduce poaching and various wildlife and forestry crimes that threatened the biodiversity of the forests, including the Malayan Tiger.
