Abstract

The government of Malaysia is committed and receptive to environment conservation efforts. The study's explicit goals will now be as follows: a) Determine community participation techniques in environmental conservation programmes; b) Detect concerns and hindrances to community participation in environmental conservation programmes; and c) Suggest the most effectual community participation approaches in environmental conservation programmes. We spoke to eight main informants from three tiers of local governments. The observations were organised using NVivo. Community participation is hampered by a lack of enthusiasm and understanding, as well as a lack of workforce and finance. 9AN
