Economic development is important but do not underestimate the importance of the forests.
Besides offering urbanites a refreshing change from the concrete jungle, a forest has so much more to offer such as resources that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change. Imagine having all the money in the world and no place to call home as the earth is dying because we keep pumping chemicals into the air that deplete the ozone layer.
I’m not saying economic development is bad. Progress is always good, but we shouldn’t be overzealous.
In Japan, there are economic incentives for green initiatives. Malaysia also has incentives for green initiatives but it needs some fine-tuning for it to be more enticing.
