STATUS OF GAME CHANGING ACTIONS
IDENTIFIED IN KATHMANDU
1. Smart Infrastructure: to link fragmented forest blocks
identified in the Central Forest Spine (CFS)
2. Wild Enforcement and Governance: 3 core tiger
habitats – Beum (north); Taman Negara (central);
Endau Rompin (south) are designated PA (5%) of
Peninsular)
3. Landscape management - 35% Peninsular are
protected for sustainable use as Forest Reserve and an
important landscape for tigers
4. Creation of transboundary PA between Belum, Malaysia
and Hala Bala, Thailand
5. Capacity building for management agencies
Key constraints to implementing these actions.
1. Funding
2. Lack of trained personnel at various levels
Costs associated with GCA implementation
1. The law enforcement and management would cost
about RM1 million per year for each of the core
tiger habitats
2. The linkages of habitats as identified under Central
Forest spine master plan which encompasses most
of the tiger habitats in Peninsular Malaysia, through
smart infrastructure and its maintenance is
estimated to cost a few billion RM
Extent of Government support of a Tiger Stabilization and
Recovery Agenda.
1. Funding for biodiversity management comes from both
Federal and State governments in Malaysia.
2. For wildlife management, the Federal Government spends
about RM 70 million in operating budget and another
RM30 million in development budget
Resource mobilization efforts.
1. The Federal government has spent an additional RM40
million to create and manage the first ecological linkage
under CFS linking Taman Negara NP with northern forest
2. However, a large portion of the tiger habitats in
Peninsular Malaysia is under the jurisdiction of the various
state governments who may need substantial assistance
to enhance the management.
INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT NEEDED.
1. Funding for the implementation under the Central Forest
Spine (CFS) - the implementation of CFS is by Ministry of
Natural Resources (NRE) Malaysia and its agencies
(Department of Wildlife and National Parks and Forestry
Department)
2. Strengthening management and enforcement at core tiger
habitats,
• Belum State Parks
• Endau Rompin State Park
• Taman Negara National Park
3. Designation of Belum State Parks as a Transboundary Park
with Hala Bala Wildlife Reserve of Thailand
4. Capacity building for the agencies that are managing the
tigers and its habitats.
