Our forest governance program continued in Johol


The newly appointed top director of the Orang Asli Affairs Department (JAKOA) at the Federal Level himself came down to the ground, and addressed some of the long standing problems, and promised to be more open. Forestry officials were also present. The huge trust deficit, between the Orang Asli and the authorities can only be improved with greater openness and accountability and respect for rights, of these communities.
