KUALA LUMPUR: In this episode of Beyond the Headlines, we delved into Malaysia's multifaceted approach to climate action, focusing on both mitigation and adaptation strategies.

Our special guest, Natural Resources and Environmental Sustainability (NRES) Minister Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad joined us to share valuable insights.

Nik Nazmi discussed the interaction between climate change and disaster events in Malaysia and elaborated on how the country can adapt to unpredictable weather patterns.

The discussion also addressed challenges of preserving urban greenery while ensuring safety, especially in light of recent incidents in Kuala Lumpur where fallen trees have posed serious risks.

Nik Nazmi also responded to critics who cite a lack of management and expertise in urban planning, discussing the root causes of these problems.

Initiatives aimed at improving communication and coordination between relevant government agencies, he said, must be continuous for effective governance.
