About the Event

Malaysia’s federal constitution states that land matters – i.e. the administration of land use and natural resources (such as forest, water, and minerals) – are under the jurisdiction of State governments. The exploitation of these land-based resources is an important source of much-needed financial revenue for state governments, which frequently leads to the unsustainable exploitation of natural resources and hampers the implementation of country-wide policies for biodiversity conservation. In this half-day workshop, we will discuss how the current Federal and State government jurisdictions and the revenue streams and distributions affect the management of natural resources, and examine alternative models that could be more conducive to the sustainable use of these resources and conservation of Malaysia’s rich biodiversity.

This event will include brief presentations from four distinguished speakers followed by a panel discussion including a Q&A session with the attendants.
