FORESTS will be the new stream of Sarawak’s income in modern economy, said Lidam Assan (GPS-Katibas) in support of the Forest Amendment Bill 2022.

“Additionally, for the safety of Sarawak and at the same time contributing to the reduction of global warming, I rise to support the Forest Amendment Bill 2022.”

Lidam pointed out that the uncultivated native communal forests would not only provide economic returns to the natives but also security to their land against encroachment, especially after such land is alienated as carbon stock forest.

“This is more so to the hilly land with no commercial viability.

“The alienation of amenity forest is one way to conserve our forest, which is good for educational, recreational and R&D purposes with proprietary right to landowners at the same time our people will still enjoy the beautiful flora and fauna.”

Lidam stated that Sarawak by virtue of its forest land size, measuring some 7.72 million hectares, was significantly capable to provide carbon stock that could be net-off compared to the industrial emission.
