Forest Files Findings Part 2: Is Sustainable Logging Sustainable?

Last year, local environmental portal Macaranga.org published four in-depth articles based on their investigation into forest-use changes in Peninsular Malaysia. Called Forest Files, the series explored issues such as forest-use policies, key drivers of forest loss and also how citizens could influence forest use. In our second of three interviews covering Macaranga's findings, we speak to Law Yao Hua, Co-Founder, Co-Editor and Writer at Macaranga.org, and also Siti Syaliza Mustapha, Senior Manager (Forest Management) at the Malaysian Timber Certification Council, about the role of the MTCC, which promotes the certification of forestry and timber products in Malaysia that meet international standards of practice, and whether this can promote sustainable logging and sustainable forestry.
