A specific body will be set up to study the implementation of forest carbon management activities following the passing of the Forests (Amendment) Bill 2022.

Simon Sinang Bada (GPS-Tebedu), Lidam Assan (GPS-Katibas) and Billy Sujang (GPS-Opar) told reporters during a joint press conference held at the Sarawak Legislative Assembly (DUN) complex lobby yesterday.

Simon said there was no definite answer now on the modus operandi of the new policy as the Bill was passed.

“The Sarawak Cabinet will appoint a body to find out how best we can implement this carbon trading as it is monitored by the United Nations.

“It cannot be done by any Tom, Dick and Harry so we trust that the GPS (Gabungan Parti Sarawak) government will be able to manage that part and that aspect,” Simon said.

In the meantime, Lidam said the appointed body would draw up the rules and the policies that came as operational part of the new law.

“But, as far as the policy is concerned, any forest that we conserve for carbon credit, definitely the land owner will benefit out of it.

“Only how it is traded through which party, either through national level or state level, we will never know but the registry will have to be developed by the state. Only then we can monetise and operationalise this carbon credit,” Lidam said.

Billy, meanwhile, concurred with the views of Simon and Lidam, saying the state government would come up with appropriate policies to implement the new law.
