Green economy: Does it include us?

Datuk Dr Goh Ban Lee

TWO important events relating to the environment take place this month. Today is World Environment Day (WED), and the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development will be held in Rio de Janeiro from June 20-22.

A day for positive environmental action, the origin of WED can be traced to 1972 when members of the UN met in Stockholm for the Conference on Human Environment. It has been a landmark event and spawned numerous inter-governmental forums in which global environmental issues are discussed with a view to taking corrective action.

Public Forum: “Perubahan Iklim-Kaitannya dengan PBT & Komuniti”

Perubahan Iklim merupakan cabaran paling sengit yang dihadapi oleh Dunia, Negara, Bandar dan komuniti pada masa kini. Impak perubahan iklim tidak terhad kepada tempatan saja namun seluruh warga Dunia akan menghadapi cabaran dan ancamannya yang sama, samada sekarang ataupun pada masa akan kelak. Perubahan Iklim telah melihatkan kenaikan haba dunia, peningkatan paras air laut, kehilangan warisan semulajadi dan sejarah dan lain yang mengubah gaya hidup dan kualiti persekitaran petempatan. Apakah perubahan iklim ini dan impak susulan akan menjejaskan perbandaran di Malaysia terutamanya wilayah Lembah Klang? Adakah kita memahami dan menyedari bahawa perubahan telah dan akan terus berlaku menjejaskan komuniti kita? Bagi menghadapi cabaran tersebut, apakah yang boleh PBT mahupun komuniti lakukan?

Dear Tan Sri, I am concerned about the encroachment of development closer and closer to the klang gate valley quartz ridge as shown in the picture from 2005 till today. This place is unique and a place for many nature lovers, hikers, photographers as well as an important heritage to be conserved and protected. I hope Tan Sri can investigate this matter and prevent any further development near to the klang gate valley quartz ridge.
