Posted on March 26, 2010. Filed under: Ecology |

(Bernama) — The Sabah Government is continuing its cooperation with the Global Forestry Services (Malaysia) to conserve and manage the forest in the state, through sustainable development.

Sabah Forestry Department director Datuk Sam Mannan said through the five-year cooperation, the company would be entrusted to check and monitor 11 forest areas in Kalabakan, Beluran, Tongod and Sipitang, comprising 164,000ha of land.

“The effort is part of the initiatives taken to reduce the effects of forest-clearing activities in the state,” he said at the signing ceremony of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the state government and Global Forestry Services here Friday.

Mannan signed the MoU on behalf of the state government while Global Forestry Services was represented by its director, Kevin T. Grace.

This is the second MoU signed by the two parties concerning forest management after the first involving Malua Forest Reserve in 2007.
