Malaysia-UK PACT


Malaysia has seen significant shifts in the climate governance landscape over the last few years and UK PACT is proud to be a partner in further accelerating strategic climate action.

Malaysia continues to make progress on its international climate commitments evidenced most recently by the transition of the Malaysian Green Technology Corporation (MGTC) to include the function of a climate change centre. The UK and Malaysia share the common goal of tackling climate change and have agreed to share best practices and approaches for climate action. The countries will have the unique opportunity to work together to address this global challenge ahead of COP26, and UK PACT is well positioned to share expertise and build capacity to advance a long-term climate transition agenda in Malaysia.

The areas of focus for Malaysia-UK PACT are: low carbon planning, nature, energy and green finance. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and its socio-economic impact in Malaysia, we also welcomed innovative projects that respond to this situation across the above themes and with respect to green recovery.
