Bismillahirrahmanirrahim, Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh and greetings. Malaysia is very lucky to be covered by tropical rainforests. The area of ​​forested areas in Peninsular Malaysia is 5,734,083 hectares which is 43.4% of the land area in Peninsular Malaysia. Of that amount, 4,812,326 hectares have been gazetted as Permanent Forest Reserves (HSK), while the remaining 921,757 hectares are Government Land Forests, Wildlife Protection Forests and other forested areas. In these decades, the forestry sector in Peninsular Malaysia has experienced several important changes in line with the needs in sustainable forest development and management, especially in the issue of greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. Forest management for the purpose of timber production has been expanded to include the production of various forest products and services including the supply of clean water sources, preservation of biological diversity, environmental quality, flood control and addressing climate change issues. Therefore, forest resources need to be managed sustainably, conserved efficiently and used responsibly for the sake of future generations. In line with the current development of forestry issues, the drafting of the Peninsular Malaysia Forestry Policy (DPSM) has taken into account new developments in line with the needs of the current forestry sector which includes aspects of Sustainable Forest Management (PHSB), conservation and protection of biological diversity, mitigation of the effects of change climate, increasing the use of technology in forest enforcement and monitoring and empowering research and development and information sharing. I would like to congratulate the Forestry Department of Peninsular Malaysia for successfully enacting this DPSM in line with the development of current forestry issues and the wishes of the local and international community.


Bismillahirrahmanirrahim, Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh and greetings. Alhamdulillah, thanks be to Allah SWT because with His abundance and grace, this Peninsular Malaysia Forestry Policy document (DPSM) can be published successfully. I would like to say well done and congratulations to the Special Task Force and DPSM Publication Committee and also to all the individuals who have contributed in the preparation and publication of this book. Persistent efforts, commitment and invaluable contributions have made the completion of this DPSM document a reality. This DPSM is a new policy formulated based on a review conducted on the National Forestry Policy 1978 (Amendment 1992). This DPSM is a guideline to ensure the maintenance of forest resources in Peninsular Malaysia. This policy is the main core in managing and developing forest resources sustainably in line with the socioeconomic needs of the country and the environment. The formulation of the DPSM also takes into account new developments in current forestry issues so that the development of the forestry sector continues to progress and remain relevant in the future. A total of 10 Objectives with nine (9) Main Cores that have been formulated and arranged to achieve the objectives that have been set in the DPSM. Based on the Main Core, 27 Strategies and 125 Action Plans have been drawn up to assist departments/agencies in Peninsular Malaysia that are directly involved in planning and managing the country's forest resources towards the achievement of sustainable forest management. DPSM was drafted by focusing on matters related to the sustainability of forest resources, conservation of the diversity of forest resources, sustainability of forest services, economic well-being and industrial continuity, legislation and enforcement, inclusion and involvement of stakeholders, social well-being and indigenous people, research, development, commercialization and innovation and society enlightened. It is my hope that this policy becomes a guideline and is the basis for the effective management and development of the country's forest resources.
