  1. Giving grants or enviromental conservation is a great move. However, on the other hand, the approval of KLORR is the direct opposite of this noble approach. The Klang Gates Dam area is a very sensitive ecological area that should be protected at all cost. And that includes “ZERO” development no matter what the reason. It is a critical source of fresh water.

    • Mr George, thank you for your support on the grant. The approval for the KLORR is not final, pending acceptance of EIA by Dept of Environment of Putrajaya. This Federal initiated and funded highway was under PM’s office. We agree with you that Klang Gates Dam is a important water catchment area and an environment sensitive area. We really appreciate to have concern citizens like your good self. Thank you.

      • Dear Sirs, Thanks for the reply. However, the Selangor Government has already gazzetted that this area is a protected forest reserve. As mentioned in the comments by WWF, there are many points that are redundant and out dated in the EIA report submitted.

        I would think that the state government can object and protect this source of water like the Langat 2 raw water tunnel project.

        I believe the PR government can see that million years old forest will never be rebuilt once destroyed and mankind (our future generation) will pay the price for this. So do the right thing and fully reject this project and any other projects that will take away these forest that nature built over millions of years .

        Realign them away from these forest areas and improve on public transportation, the scale will balance out once there is “efficient and economical” public transportation available. Building more roads will never make our lives better as we are stressed out stuck in traffic. Sitting on a bus and enjoying a song , reading a book or a short nap would be a better life.

      • Mr George, thank you again for your comments. Both highway authority and public transport (SPAD) are both Federal agencies, which both also refuses to be friendly with the current State Government.

        On the matter of EKVE EIA feedback, I trust that you have put your written comments to the DOE Putrajaya within the stipulated time frame. If yes, we truly appreciated your support for the forest and mother nature.

        Again, if you have environmental programs that you think will benefit the people of Selangor, please feel free to submit an application for this grant.

        Let’s make it happen!

        Terima kasih.

  2. When is the deadline for submission?

    • Dear Deborah, this grant will run throughout the year 2012, or until the total grant funding depleted, whichever comes first. Thus we would strongly urge potential applicants to submit your paperwork soonest possible.
      Thank you.

  3. A friend of mine has put up some information on the KLORR here (http://bit.ly/HarQlB) as an Issue Map.

  4. HI. We would like to ask, if a project is approved, when are the funds released to the NGO – for example, is the full amount of the grant released upon the approval of the project, is it a partial dispersal (if so, could we know the dispersal schedule), or is the grant only released upon completion of the project and submission of the final report? Thank you.

    • Dear TrEES,

      1. The best answer we can provide, from the limited information, to decide on case-by-case. Depending on the total grant approved and timeline of the program, an progress-payment may be applied.

      2. For more information, please contact the office at alamsekitarselangor@gmail.com or submit your proposal and we’ll advise accordingly.

      Thank you
