SUMMARY OF FOREST MONITORING ACTIVITIES
(PERIOD JAN-DEC 2019)
|NO||MONITORING ELEMENT||INDICATORS||REMARK / REPORT|
|1||The yield of forest product||Log production summary||– Total Log Production YTD 55,633 m3.|
|Summary of reassessment of PSP’s since the establishment|
Species composition and no. of sapling recorded
Diameter distribution and forest quality
|– Preliminary assessment from 2 SFC plots reveal that: |
a) Current Annual Increment (CAI)
Overall- 0.57 cm/year
Dipterocarp- 0.53 cm/year
Non-Dipterocarp- 0.6 cm/year
b) Mortality Rate
|3||The composition of flora and fauna||List of flora and fauna found in FMU||Flora |
Analysis conducted based on pre-harvest inventory in Coupe 01 AR and Coupe 02 AR. Total area assessed 8,598 ha.
Data for both coupes showed that dominancy of Diterocarpaceae family at an average 60% and 40% from non-Diterocarpaceae family.
Five (5) wildlife studies has been conducted such as hornbill survey with Unimas, research collaboration with Leibniz and WWF, HCV assessment with Dr Yap SK and etc. As of 2019, a total of 99 species of wildlife (mammal, birds, reptile, amphibians and fish) recorded from 2017.
|4||Changes in flora and fauna||Number and abundance of species found in FMU and comparison between earlier and recent assessment.||Flora |
Timber species composition slightly difference in terms of family and species composition which might be due to fact that enumeration in coupe 1 AR covered larger area compared with Coupe 2 AR.
Currently, monitoring result on change of fauna composition cannot be captured until at least 2nd monitoring data has been collected.
|5||Environmental Impacts of Forest Operation||Harvesting Impact|
EIA Approval term and condition
|– The study is still on-going.|
– Four environmental monitoring report for the Coupe 1AR had been produced by Ecosol Consultancy Sdn Bhd and not detected any major pollution effect from the sites.
|6||Social Impact of Forest Operation||Evidence of FPIC and joint identification of special sites for native|
Evidence of provision of CSR / Community services
Number of forest encroachment
Number of complaint, disputes and conflict encountered with directly affected native
Number of property damage
|– Consultation have been conducted with local communities at Rh Lucy and Rh. Buni to identify community use area and another one consultation at Rh. Sebastian Tambi, Rh. Kunyo and Rh. Selat to verify and demarcate of identified SA, special sites and tradisional knowledge at Coupe 2.|
