Don’t just adapt, mitigate too


GREENPEACE Malaysia welcomes the recent announcement by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob that the government will formulate a National Adaptation Plan (MyNAP) relating to the impact of climate change.

The effects of climate change are causing significant economic losses for Malaysia, undermining infrastructure and development efforts, and impacting livelihoods. We saw this in December 2021 with flooding in several states that claimed 55 lives, affected 125,000 people, left 50,000 cars damaged, and caused about RM2.6bil in property damage.
