Climate Governance Malaysia Showcase at Climate Week New York

Overview

This session broadcasted on Sep, 17 2020, 1:30 PM (UK Time)

Malaysia’s tropical forest ecosystems are a vital carbon reserve, removing some 250 million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere and supporting incredible biodiversity – but 3.9 million hectares have been cleared for oil palm plantations since 1990.

Although this has helped to meet global demand for products from lipstick to pizza dough and brought greater prosperity to the country, de-forestation has also depleted Malaysia’s forests as carbon sinks and havens for wildlife.

With the right investment and approach to conservation, though, Malaysian forests can make an important contribution towards the Paris Agreement target of limiting the increase in global temperature to 2c above pre-industrial times.
