Status of conservation and management of biological diversity by Mind Map: Status of conservation and management of biological diversity

1. Overview

1.1. 1970-1992: Natural forest in the whole of Malaysia was reduced by 19.3 percent

2. In-situ conservation

2.1. Function: to maintain plants and animals in their original habitat

2.2. Protected areas on land (as of 1992)

2.3. Marine waters gazetted as marine parks to (as of 1994)

2.4. Inadequate conservation efforts

2.4.1. Under-represented habitats Wetlands Limestone and quartz hills

2.4.2. Inadequate conservation of individual species of plants, insects or fish due to lack of adequate knowledge

2.4.3. Inadequate conservation of landraces of indigenous plant species such as fruits and rice

3. Ex-situ conservation

3.1. Function: To maintain species outside their original habitats in various facilities. Ease of access for scientists to study, distribute and use plant genetic resources

3.1.1. Plants Arboretas Seed genebanks

3.1.2. Animals Zoos Sanctuaries Captive breeding centres

3.1.3. Microorganisms Universities and research institutes' depository

3.1.4. Inadequate conservation Urgent need for national botanical garden

4. Sectoral policies

4.1. Minimizing impacts of various economic sectors on biological diversity through incorporation of conservation of biological diversity and sustainable development into development plans

4.1.1. The Five-year Development Plans

4.1.2. The Second Outline Perspective Plan (1991-2000)

5. The legislative framework

5.1. Current: No single comprehensive legislation in Malaysia which relates to biological diversity conservation as a whole

5.1.1. Much of the legislation is sector-based (examples) Fisheries Act 1985 Protection of Wildlife Act 1972 National Forestry Act 1984

5.2. Federal, Concurrent and State List of the Ninth Schedule

5.2.1. Legislative authority Both Federal and State Governments Protection of wild animals, wild birds and National Parks State only Forest and agriculture Federal (apply to whole Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak) EQA 1974 Fisheries Act 1985

5.2.2. Problem: Non-uniform implementation between states

6. International cooperation and linkages

6.1. Ratified Convention on Biological Diversity (1994)

6.1.1. Setting commitments under the treaty by developing national policy and financial support

6.2. Party of Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) (since 1998)

6.3. Member of World Conservation Union (IUCN)

6.4. Ratified United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (1994)

6.5. Active participant of the International Board for Plant Genetic Resources Regional Committee for South-East Asia (IBPGR/RECSEA)
