Brunei forest cover helps absorb GHG emissions; no Covid-19 cases reported


BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Sept 8 (Borneo Bulletin/ANN): Although Brunei Darussalam is not a significant contributor to the global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the nation is still experiencing the adverse impact of climate change from GHG emissions, including a rise in temperature and an increase in the number of forest fires in the last decade.

This was highlighted yesterday by Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism Hajah Tutiaty binti Haji Abdul Wahab during the opening of the Brunei Darussalam National Climate Change Policy (BNCCP) Operational Document Task Force (ODTF) Workshop, which resumed this week to discuss the BNCCP Strategy 2 on Forest Cover.
