Dubbed a “shared policy”, the Malaysian forestry policy, which was launched last Sunday, will serve as a reference and guide to forestry policies adopted in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak.
The formulation of the policy is said to be a manifestation of the country’s commitment toward implementing sustainable forest management.
Is this policy binding or more aspirational? BFM explores this and speaks to Meenakshi Raman, president of Sahabat Alam Malaysia.
