Is Malaysia Prepared for Extreme Weather Events?

If one thing is clear from the recent flood disaster, it's that Malaysia isn't prepared for changing weather patterns, and extreme weather events. Gabungan Darurat Iklim Malaysia (GDIMY), a loose coalition of civil society organisations and individuals which was formed in 2021 to address Malaysia’s response to the global climate emergency through urgent and concerted action, have come up with a list of demands for both the federal and state governments to prioritise, to address  future extreme climate events in our country. We catch up with Ili Nadiah Dzulfakar, the Chairperson of Klima Action Malaysia (KAMY) which is part of GDIMY, to discuss what needs to be done.
