Whither Accountability In Forest Management?

Lim Teck Wyn, Forestry Researcher

Whither Accountability In Forest Management?

The decision by the Selangor state government to degazette part of the Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve, despite public opposition, sparked furious backlash last week. The saga also highlights the shortcomings of the system in holding government authorities accountable for decisions that affect forest conservation and management. We speak to forestry researcher Lim Teck Wyn on the complexities of forest management and how the decision-making process can be made more transparent and democratic.
