TASIK CHINI - A CASE STUDY OF OUR ECO HOPES & A DISASTER IN THE MAKING

Moderator: Emeritus Professor Dato’ Dr Abdul Latiff Mohamad
Date: Saturday, 17 July 2021
Time: 4:00PM (Kuala Lumpur, GMT+8)

About the Talk
Tasik Chini is one of only 2 natural lakes system in Peninsular Malaysia and due to its high biological diversity of plants and wildlife, it became internationally recognised as a UNESCO Biosphere Preserve in 2009. There are over 714 of these unique preserves in the world with only 2 recognised in Malaysia. The government (federal and Pahang state) immediately spent taxpayers' money to develop and promote this place as the country's iconic tourism & ecotourism site, as well as to protect and preserve the lifestyle and livelihood of the indigenous Jakun tribe that lives in this landscape. However, things have not panned out well for the local community, the environment of Tasik Chini and Malaysia. So, what is going on there?
