Zamani presenting a Voluntary Local Review at the United Nations High Level Political Forum.

SHAH Alam City Council (MBSA) will continue to implement sustainable development measures within the city in line with its goal of becoming a low carbon city by 2030.

The city council reaffirmed its commitment during a Voluntary Local Review (VLR) presentation at the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) High Level Political Forum (HLPF) 2021 organised by the United Nations Economic and Social Council (Ecosoc).

Shah Alam mayor Datuk Zamani Ahmad Mansor presented the special VLR report on Shah Alam SDGs virtually alongside representatives from selected major cities during the United Nations HLPF.

Other speakers who participated in the forum included the mayor of Amman, Jordan, the executive director of LSE Cities research centre in London, Egypt Regional Planning Sector head and the governor of Tokyo, Japan.

Shah Alam’s VLR is a reporting mechanism that enables the city council and stakeholders to share their progress, experiences and practices as the city progresses towards becoming a sustainable city under the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Shah Alam is the first city in Malaysia to join the Malaysia SDGs Cities network coordinated by Urbanice Malaysia through measurement of indicators of the targeted SDGs until 2030.
