PROTECTING THE RIVER OF LIFE - CONSERVATION OF NENGGIRI RIVER BASIN AND ITS ASSOCIATED BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY THROUGH LOCAL COMMUNITIES INITIATIVES
Nenggiri River Basin in Gua Musang, Kelantan is one of the 3 main tributaries to Kelantan River, characterized by thick tropical forest of the Titiwangsa Range. The surrounding environment and biodiversity of the Nenggiri River Basin is under threats due to development activities and plantation industries up-stream of the river. An integrated river basin management system with strong community engagement will help to provide an effective mechanism and solution to safeguard the natural resources of the river basin and sustain the income generating opportunities to the local communities. The integrated management system will be implemented in collaboration with other key stakeholder, including government enforcement agencies.
