NRE, will play the leading role in implementing the Strategy. This includes undertaking the necessary coordination among stakeholders, establishing the appropriate institutional platforms, facilitating resource mobilisation and initiating review of the Policy, as necessary. NRE will be responsible for coordination among the various Federal ministries and states for the implementation of this strategy.
The State Governments and their agencies have jurisdiction over and responsibility for the management of inter alia land, water and forests and will therefore play important roles in delivering the actions under the Strategy. The state government will ensure that the REDD+ actions are implemented effectively.
The Strategy provides many opportunities for civil society to participate, either on its own or in collaboration with other stakeholders. Given their vast knowledge and their aptitude to work with indigenous peoples and local communities as well as with regional and international networks, civil society will play a very important role in translating the Strategy into action.
Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities
The Strategy places emphasis on empowering and supporting indigenous peoples and local communities to undertake biodiversity conservation. They are envisaged to be active partners in managing our forest and the resources.
The private sector will play an important role in ensuring the objectives of the Strategy are met. Many of the actions identified in the Policy can be undertaken by the private sector, either on its own or in collaboration with other stakeholder groups. A framework for public –private partnership will be established under this Strategy.
Research and Education
Implementing the Strategy will require the best available scientific expertise and knowledge. Malaysia has a large research community at our universities and research institutions and this community has an important role to play in ensuring that the results obtained are reliable. Educators also make valuable contributions by increasing the community's awareness on climate change through establishing practical partnerships and experiential learning
