Promoting urban sustainability through green technology in Malaysia

Promoting urban sustainability through green technology in Malaysia. Working Paper. Malaysia Sustainable Cities Program. (2016)


This paper provides an evaluation of Malaysia’s green technology stimulus policy and actions for industrial firms. We used interviews and a questionnaire to assess if responses from local authorities and industrial firms are in accordance with the targets and objectives of the Green Technology Policy. Following a performance evaluation, we concluded that the involvement of local authorities and industrial firms is limited, due to a disconnect in implementation between federal, state, and local authorities, even though the policy strongly encourages the use of green technology to increase economic growth and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The lack of ongoing evaluation after six years of the Green Technology Policy initiative needs to be urgently addressed. Timely policy evaluation is required to increase public support, and ensure the most cost-effective use of resources. Toward those ends, policy prescriptions—aimed at promoting green technology to accelerate economic growth and sustainable industrial transformation— will be put forward.
