Kuala Lumpur City Hall has identified Wangsa Maju’s Section 1 for its pilot project and hopes to impress stakeholders in other areas on the long-term benefits of switching to green technology to address climate change.

WANGSA Maju will become the first eco-conscious township in Kuala Lumpur, thanks to a pilot project spearheaded by Kuala Lumpur City Hall’s (DBKL) Project Implementation and Building Department.

DBKL is, however, zeroing in on the Section 1 neighbourhood as its test project in a move to encourage active participation from stakeholders, including residents and private businesses.
