Criteria and Indicators for Sustainable Forest Management

Since the turn of the century, forests in Malaysia have been systematically managed. Ecologically and environmentally sound forest conservation and management practices have been developed to ensure that the forest resources are managed for the sustainable production of timber and non- timber products, ensuring climatic stability and ecological balance, safeguarding of water supply and environmental quality, and the conservation of biological diversity. Today, Malaysia, as a member of the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) which is fully committed to ITTO's objectives, is striving towards the achievement of forest management that is environmentally responsible, socially beneficial and economically viable.
