慕沙,世界亏欠你咯?

当你看到猫为老鼠哭泣时,你认为猫慈悲了?

当一个强奸惯犯对世人控诉“世人都忽略了我的宣传,不知道我的努力,我已经有一系列的克制犯案的机制,我是认真推动保护青春少女普及光顾夜店计划的!”,你可怜他吗?

当希特勒举起他的手向世人控诉:“为什么一些人会有种族偏见?有优秀和等级的观念?”你会感动吗?

当那个满脸发红疹,大喊寄居者滚回去的家伙,说:“如果发生动乱,我会第一个站出来保护他的华人朋友!”你会动心吗?等等等。

嘿,至少沙巴首席部长还算是老实得可爱的:“他们忽略了我们的宣传,所以不知道我们在做些甚麽……但我们确实在认真进行保育工作,我们决心推动‘婆罗洲心脏’计划。”

是的,至少他承认这是宣传!

是的,如果世人忽略(客观的分析)了我(慕沙& Co. Pte Ltd.)们的宣传(花人民的钱请人拍短片,请国际形象顾问公司想口号,美化,包装!),他们就不知道我们在做什么了(世人,你们觉悟吧!)。

慕沙,有兴趣公开这些木山执照的背景吗?检讨准则?沙巴政府以每立方米什么价格来税收?国际木材市价是什么?

附录:对资助森林保育计划国内外机构反应冷淡慕沙感失望重申政府决心推动‘婆罗洲心脏’计划

(本报讯)首席部长拿督慕沙阿曼昨日指出许多机构包括来自外国的对资助本州推动森林保育计划反应冷淡,他表示对此感到失望。 他认为,造成这种现象的主因是资讯的传递不足,以致许多人对州政府向来推动森林保育工作毫不了解。

他说:“他们忽略了我们的宣传,所以不知道我们在做些甚麽……但我们确实在认真进行保育工作,我们决心推动‘婆罗洲心脏’计划。”

慕沙是在亚庇某著名酒店为“加强沙巴‘婆罗洲心脏’计划森林生态系统联系与走廊研讨会”主持开幕礼后,接受报界访问时这麽表示。在表示担忧森林地段倘遭分隔会对生态造成破坏时,他强调州政府在保育森林的决心与立场,故希望更多的国际组织及公司提供资金,积极参与本州森林保育计划。他指出,迄今本州在森林保育方面所获得的资金并不多,因此,他希望能有更多国际组织、公司及人士,前来沙巴州一同参与森林保育计划。

慕沙呼吁美国及欧盟国家前来沙巴参与森林保育计划,并以认同沙巴州在这方面所作出努力,并给予资金上的援助。他重申,州政府将继续给予“婆罗洲心脏”计划支持及协助,以达致所既定的目标,确保跨越马来西亚、印尼及汶莱三国热带雨林多元化生态,尤其是人猿、小矮象等受到保护。他说:“我们在‘婆罗洲心脏’计划下已把本州约廿五万公顷森林颁布为一级森林保护区,这些森林保护已没有任何伐木活动。”婆罗洲岛上的三国即汶莱、印尼和大马于前年签署“婆罗洲心脏”计划,目的在于加强跨国界合作,以保护面积达廿二万平方公里、跨越三国的热带雨林多元化生态系统。

州森林局总监拿督森玛南在致词时提出,本州要成为世界森林管理的佼佼者,包括成为全球最佳管理热带雨林,所有森林都会良好管理及认证。他说:“我们也要通过第三方的稽查与改善,使本州拥有世界最透明的森林管理,以及成世界最佳人猿保护地,成为人猿最好的家园。”

较早时,慕沙在该仪式上见证日本伊藤忠商事株式会社与大马世界自然基金,以及PBB油棕公司及沙巴森林局签署合作备忘录。在首项备忘录中,伊藤忠捐献马币四百卅万元予大马世界自然基金,以修复乌鲁西加麦森林保护区的九百六十七公顷遭砍伐的森林;在第二项备忘录中,PBB公司则与州森林局合作,以修复该公司位于西加麦河河岸保护区三百八十二公顷森林。

附录:Understanding forest tenure in South and Southeast Asia, Case Study: Sabah Forestry Ownership by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 2006

Conclusion

Although SFD is on the right path with its prescriptions and emphasis on long-term tenures and SFM through the shift to SFMLAs, forest management has not improved significantly over the past eight years, apart from in the FMUs under SFD management, which are subject to third-party verification assessments. The main obstacle for SFMLA holders may be financial, but there is still a lack of vision among the private enterprises and the state to make SFM achievable.

SFM and SFMLA look likely to lead to better tenure security for communities, if recent developments in the use of OPs are successful and can be scaled up. The combination of improving tenure security within forest reserves (instead of relocating communities) and community agro-forestry programmes seems likely to improve the economic livelihoods of indigenous communities in the medium term. These are very new developments, which SFD has carried out in part to fulfil the requirement for certification, but which SFMLA holders have not attempted. Although it is still early, this development by SFD is acknowledged as an important and positive step in addressing social issues in forest management.

One common feature emerges from this discussion: the best practices achieved so far under Sabah’s SFM approach to forest management is found in SFD-managed FMUs. This has been possible through the pursuit of SFD certification as an objective. Unless certification becomes a goal for the remaining FMUs, far more needs to be addressed at the policy level for SFM to be possible, e.g., through supporting the forestry industry over agriculture, particularly oil-palm, and creating incentives for CF systems to thrive. Without a change of mindset, suitable incentives and the right regulatory environment, it is unlikely that SFMLA holders can significantly improve the state of Sabah’s forests and the livelihoods of indigenous communities in the foreseeable future.
