Macaranga Wrap-up: March 2023

Another month almost over, another roundup of top environmental news with the co-founders of journalism portal Macaranga. This month, Law Yao Hua and Wong Siew Lyn join us to discuss the Sarawak Premier's announcement that the state will establish a Sarawak Climate Change Centre, before tackling the news from the Dewan Rakyat by Natural Resources, Environment, and Climate Change Minister Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, that the government are mulling the idea of granting the authority to the Environment Department to appoint its own consultants to conduct environmental impact assessments (EIA) on development projects. Lastly, we look forward to Earth Day,  on the 22nd of April, and discuss how we can all "Invest in Our Planet."
