KUALA LUMPUR: The “A River, A State” campaign will kick off next year to check pollution of rivers. 

Natural Resources and Environment Ministry secretary-general Datuk Dr Isahak Yeop Mohamad Shar said the campaign would tackle environmental issues such as the depleting firefly colony in Kuala Selangor. 

“If it’s trees that are lacking, we’ll contact the forestry department (to get more trees planted) and if there’s a problem with the water, we would get the Drainage and Irrigation Department to look into it,” he said. 

He said the objective of the campaign was to co-ordinate efforts from various departments and NGOs in tackling pollution. 

“Throughout the year, there will be teams to identify the problems and work to resolve them.”
