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 government’s announcement that it will formulate a National Adaptation Plan (MyNAP) to tackle climate change. The UK and Malaysia have agreed to share best practices and approaches for climate action. The two countries have a unique opportunity to work together to address this global challenge. Following commitments made during COP26, the UK and Malaysia further strengthened their co-operation on tackling

the climate crisis by signing a new partnership agreement in June 2022.

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 green recovery.
