Crocker Range Park to become natural water tank for Sabahans

Apr 4, 2024

Sabah's Crocker Range Park is poised to supply a staggering 4.3 billion litres of water daily, catering to the needs of 28 million residents, Sabah Media reported.

Sabah Minister of Tourism, Culture, and Environment Datuk Christina Liew said the park's daily water output is valued at approximately RM7.7 million, based on the current price of RM1.80 per 1,000 litres of water in Sabah.

During the 40th anniversary celebration of the park organised by Sabah Parks in Keningau, Liew underscored the park's crucial role in the state's environmental stewardship and its economic value in ecosystem services.

"Our focus is on the economic value of the ecosystem services we provide, which directly benefits 99,100 community members across 385 villages within the Crocker Range Biosphere Reserve (CRBR)," she said.
