This lab report addresses challenges and gaps in Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) policies and implementation in Malaysia, and recommended for the country to have its own comprehensive strategy and action plan for transformative CCA and DRR in ensuring coherence, synergy and impact.
Some of the achievements and best practices that Malaysia can leverage, replicate, scale-up and improve include:
- Production of publications on CCA and DRR in the local language with simplified scientific language by Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM).
- Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ)’s continuous environmental campaigns and programs at the city level.
- Yayasan Sejahtera’s livelihood programs, which indirectly benefit the welfare of children and youth.
Recommendations and key actions can be found on page 5.
