KEMENTERIAN TINGKAT KERJASAMA DENGAN PDT CAMERON HIGHLANDS

PUTRAJAYA, Jun 6 (Bernama) -- Kementerian Sumber Asli dan Alam Sekitar (NRE)

menerusi agensi-agensi di bawahnya seperti Jabatan Alam Sekitar (JAS), Jabatan

Pengairan dan Saliran (JPS) dan Jabatan Perhutanan Semenanjung Malaysia (JPSM)

akan bekerjasama dengan Pejabat Daerah dan Tanah (PDT) Cameron Highlands bagi

menyelesaikan isu pencerobohan tanah hutan kerajaan di Cameron Highlands.

Kementerian beserta agensi penguatkuasa tidak akan teragak-agak untuk mengambil

tindakan tegas bagi membendung gejala pencerobohan tanah hutan kerajaan di

daerah tersebut.

Kementerian juga ini sedang mempertingkatkan penguatkuasaan terhadap aktiviti

pembukaan tanah dan kerja-kerja tanah melalui pelaksanaan Program Pasukan

Penguatkuasaan 1NET (One NRE Enforcement Team) yang melibatkan Jabatan Alam

Sekitar dan Jabatan Pengairan dan Saliran (JPS), di mana JPS telah diperwakilkan

kuasa untuk menguatkuasakan Akta Kualiti Alam Sekeliling 1974.

Di samping itu, Kerajaan Persekutuan menerusi NRE turut mempertingkatkan

pemantauan rapi dan komprehensif terhadap isu pemusnahan dan pencerobohan hutan

di Cameron Highlands. Tindakan boleh diambil dibawah Akta Pemuliharaan Tanah

1960 dalam usaha membanteras aktiviti pembukaan tanah haram di daerah tersebut

dengan kerjasama PDT Cameron Highlands. NRE bersama Jabatan/agensi di bawahnya

seperti JAS, Jabatan Perhutanan Semenanjung Malaysia (JPSM), Jabatan

Perlindungan Hidupan Liar dan Taman Negara (PERHILITAN) dan Jabatan Ketua

Pengarah Tanah dan Galian (JKPTG) sentiasa menggembleng usaha bersama selaras

dengan matlamat Strategi Lautan biru Negara (National Blue Ocean Strategy -

NBOS) dalam meningkatkan aktiviti pemantauan dan penguatkuasaan bagi memastikan

khazanah sumber asli dan alam sekitar tidak terjejas di Cameron Highlands.

Terdahulu, media tempatan telah melaporkan berlakunya pembukaan tanah secara

haram di Blue Valley; Lembah Menson, Brinchang; Tanah Rata dan Kampung Taman

Sedia. Berikutan isu tersebut, Kementerian Sumber Asli dan Alam Sekitar (NRE)

telah menubuhkan Jawatankuasa Siasatan Isu Pembukaan Tanah Untuk Pertanian

Secara Haram di Cameron Highlands dan hasil siasatan jawatankuasa tersebut

telahpun dimaklumkan kepada Jemaah Menteri. Bagi mempertingkatkan keberkesanan

penguatkuasaan dan pemantauan, Mesyuarat Jemaah Menteri pada 12 Oktober 2012

telah membuat keputusan meluluskan peruntukan sebanyak RM2 juta kepada NRE untuk

menjalankan aktiviti tinjauan udara (air surveillance) melalui JAS di

kawasan-kawasan berisiko tinggi di seluruh Semenanjung Malaysia.

Program pemantauan udara ini akan diteruskan sepanjang tahun 2013 kerana langkah

proaktif kerajaan itu telah memberikan impak positif dalam menangani isu

pencerobohan hutan dan pembalakan haram. Pemantauan melalui udara ini turut

dihebahkan kepada pengusaha-pengusaha tanah pertanian di Cameron Highlands

kerana kerajaan memandang serius terhadap isu pembalakan dan penerokaan tanah

secara haram.

Sebagai inisiatif jangka panjang, Kementerian beserta JAS juga sedang meninjau

kemungkinan penyediaan Environmental Blueprint bagi Daerah Cameron Highlands

yang bertujuan untuk mengariskan strategi dan pelan tindakan jangka masa pendek,

sederhana dan panjang bagi memastikan pembangunan di Cameron Highlands

dilaksanakan mengambil kira Carrying Capacity dan secara lestari, selaras dengan

pelan tempatan yang telah digariskan oleh kerajaan tempatan dan Kerajaan Negeri.

Isu-isu yang telah digariskan untuk tindakan segera adalah hakisan dan kelodakan

yang menyebabkan pencemaran sungai akibat pencerobohan tanah secara haram,

pertanian tanah tinggi tanpa melaksanakan kawalan hakisan dan kelodakan,

pencerohan hutan simpan kekal, pencerobohan rizab sungai serta banjir kilat.

Kawasan kawasan ‘sensitive’ alam sekitar juga akan dikenalpasti bagi tujuan

pemuliharaan dan pengurusan kawasan tadahan. Program pemulihan dengan penanaman

semula pokok pokok hutan juga akan dilaksanakan kelak.

Terdahulu, satu bengkel kerja yang telah dihadiri oleh agensi-agensi di bawah

Kementerian Sumber Asli dan Alam Sekitar iaitu Jabatan Pengairan dan Saliran,

Jabatan Perhutanan Semenanjung Malaysia, Jabatan Alam Sekitar, Jabatan Mineral

dan Geosains, dan Jabatan Ketua Pengarah Tanah dan Galian bersama Pejabat Daerah

dan Tanah Cameron Highlands bagi mengenalpasti isu-isu alam sekitar di Camerons

Highlands untuk ditangani bersama.

Kerajaan berharap segala usaha tersebut dapat meningkatkan keyakinan masyarakat

akan kesungguhan Kerajaan dalam memastikan sumber asli dan alam sekitar

terpelihara daripada kegiatan-kegiatan yang boleh mengancam kelestariannya.
