Malaysia Management Effectiveness Tracking Tool (METT) Handbook

Malaysia is acknowledged as one of the most megadiverse countries in the world. To
safeguard this natural biodiversity heritage, Malaysians have undertaken many positive
efforts including establishing protected areas with the conservation of natural biodiversity in
mind. Over the years, hundreds of protected areas both for marine and terrestrial habitats,
have been established in Malaysia under the jurisdiction of different management agencies.

Despite these commendable efforts, there is an urgent need to assess the management
efficacy of these protected areas in order for them to effectively conserve the biodiversity
resources towards achieving their respective conservation goals. This allows for a better
understanding of the specific sites' needs and enables the protected area managers to cater
to them. With the use of the Management Effectiveness Tracking Tool (METT), the
effectiveness of management decisions and actions within protected areas are easily
evaluated by the protected area managers and used to guide future conservation activities.

This Malaysia Management Effectiveness Tracking Tool (METT) Handbook was developed to
incorporate Malaysian context in the guidance notes to facilitate the evaluation of
Malaysian protected areas. This 88-page handbook also includes the translation of the METT
assessment into Malay in addition to relevant case studies. This Handbook is hoped to encourage more
protected area managers in Malaysia to assess and improve the effectiveness of our
protected areas.

WWF-Malaysia would like to acknowledge all contributors and partners involved in making this publication a success.
