Sabah, Malaysia

Sabah, Malaysia

Sabah is a state of Malaysia in the northern tip of the island of Borneo. Sabah is home to Mount Kinabalu, which constitutes arguably the richest flora in the world and is included in the World Wide Fund for Nature’s Global 200 as one of the earth’s most valuable regions for biodiversity conservation action. Natural Justice is working with the Sabah Biodiversity Centre to develop guidelines to help a range of stakeholders understand the forthcoming Sabah Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) Regulations. Natural Justice is also developing a project to explore the implementation of the ABS Regulations in the wider context of conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and community governance of natural resources.

Natural Justice’s work is being funded by UNEP, UNU-IAS, and the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity.
