Communities in the mountainous northern areas of Sarawak can look forward to cleaner water, sustainable rice farming methods and improved forest protection. There are plans over three years to raise awareness on food and water protection, boost biological diversity and improve eco preservation in the rural areas of Ba’kelalan and Long Semadoh.

The project, a joint partnership between CIMB Islamic Bank and World Wildlife Fund Malaysia (WWF-Malaysia), involves a RM1.5mil fund. [In addition to dealing with eroision] the project aims to promote the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) among Ba’kelalan farmers [to] make rice farming more sustainable. This will lessen the need to develop more areas for rice fields.
