To enhance cooperation in climate action, British Environment Minister Zach Goldsmith signed a new partnership today Tuesday with Malaysian Minister of Environment and Water Datuk Seri Duan Ibrahim Duan Mann.
“The UK-Malaysia climate partnership will enable the two countries to work together on climate and biodiversity, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and enhancing efficiency and ambition through the exchange of knowledge and technological expertise,” a statement from the British government’s website said.
The partnership covers five key areas: “Cooperation in climate and biodiversity issues, enhancing knowledge exchange, promoting scientific and technological cooperation, and promoting support and awareness activities for private sector participation.”
Following the Bilateral Strategic Partnership Agreement on November 2021, this partnership will deepen relations between the UK and Malaysia.
“Coping with climate change and biodiversity loss requires commitment and cooperation,” Goldsmith said. .
At COP26, the UK also announced new support for Southeast Asian countries, including Malaysia. The £ 110 million ASEAN Green Finance facility will support new sustainable infrastructure projects and UK 274 million under the UK Climate Action Plan for Flexible Asia will promote climate adaptation across the Indian and Pacific Oceans.
