Forest and Climate – Decoding and Realising REDD in The Heart of Borneo (HoB), With Special Focus on Sabah

November 8 - November 9, 2010 Host Sabah Forestry Department (SFD) & WWF Malaysia

“We want to explore what is in store for Sabah and hope to come up with a strategy on how best to move forward,” Datuk Sam Mannan, director of Sabah Forestry Department (SFD) told Borneopedia.com from his head office in Sandakan Sept. 20, 2010.

The main objective of the conference, he says, is to bring awareness and understanding of the role of forest and climate change, especially on REDD to a wider audience in Sabah, including forest concessionaires, relevant government departments, non-government agencies, higher learning institutions, oil palm plantations and civil societies.

Sam Mannan said the conference is also designed to explore the needs of implementation of REDD in Sabah, including the legal, financial and technical aspects.
