Budget2024 - Entitlements for the Environment

Themed “Economic Reforms, Empowering the People,” Budget 2024 was announced on the 13th of October 2023, by Malaysia's Prime Minister & Finance Minister, Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim. The Second Belanjawan MADANI has allocated RM393.8 billion - the highest budget ever tabled by any government in Malaysia’s history, with RM90 billion from the total allocated for development expenditure. We speak to three experts to discuss both highlights and missed opportunities from Budget 2024 in terms of allocations for the environment, covering biodiversity and nature conservation, the ESG agenda, and the transition towards a low-carbon economy, among others. Joining us to do that are Surin Suksuwan (Biodiversity Conservationist and Sustainability Practitioner), Dr Helena Varkkey (Associate Professor of Environmental Politics and Governance, Universiti Malaya) and Affendi Yang Amri (Coral Reef Ecologist, Universiti Malaya, and President, Malaysian Society of Marine Sciences).
