Title BUFFER ZONE MANAGEMENT FOR PULONG TAU NATIONAL PARK WITH INVOLVEMENT OF LOCAL COMMUNITIES IN SARAWAK, MALAYSIA
Status OPERATIONAL
Executing agency
SFD - FOREST DEPARTMENT OF SARAWAK
Summary When the Pulong Tau National Park (PTNP) was created in 2005, the local ethnic communities were not granted privileges to use the park’s resources for subsistence, while the forests outside the park were already licensed for logging long before 2005. Many of the communities are still forest-dependent even up to the present day. The need to safeguard the Totally Protected Areas’ (TPAs) rich resources from anthropogenic activities is becoming increasingly necessary and urgent. The development objective of the project proposal is to contribute to the integrated development of the buffer zone for environmental conservation and uplifting local communities livelihood. The specific objective is to secure the buffer zone’s forest for use by indigenous communities and to strengthen the protection of Pulong Tau. These objectives will be achieved through the establishment of 6,000 ha of the buffer zone, and securing a forest base to meet the communities’ needs. The project objectives and outputs will be met through integrated buffer zone management, training, and active involvement of primary and secondary stakeholders. The project will be sustained by Forest Department Sarawak (FDS) through its Community Service Initiative Unit (CSIU).
