Is Malaysia prepared for extreme weather events?

Massive Klang Valley floods 2021

If one thing is clear from the recent flood disaster, it is that Malaysia is not prepared for changing weather patterns, and extreme weather events.

Gabungan Darurat Iklim Malaysia, a loose coalition of civil society organisations and individuals which was formed in 2021 to address Malaysia’s response to the global climate emergency through urgent and concerted action, has come up with a list of demands for both the federal and state governments to prioritise to address future extreme climate events in the country.

BFM speaks with Ili Nadiah Dzulfakar, the chairperson of Klima Action Malaysia (Kamy), which is part of GDIMY, to discuss what needs to be done.
