BANGI: Thirty-four research papers on sustainable city development efforts in Malaysia have been published under Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia’s (UTM) Malaysia Sustain­able Cities Programme (MSCP).

MSCP programme manager Selmah Gold­­berg said the five-year programme which began in 2014 was to study and document sustainable city development efforts here.

Under the programme, Selmah said, visiting scholars selected from around the world conducted and developed research findings into instructional material to enhance sustainable cities development in the country.

“MIT chose to collaborate with UTM in the programme as Malaysia is an exemplary role model for developing countries which has advanced in commitment for sustainable development efforts.

“We are interested to understand more about Malaysia’s sustainable development efforts.

“We hope the research papers published under MSCP that are posted on our website can contribute to improvement in other ci­ties,” she said after a luncheon hosted by Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Zaini Ujang on Saturday. — Bernama
