Country context and status of national communication
Country Context and status of National Communication

Rapidly growing economy and emissions

Increasing energy demand

Emissions anticipated to grow by up to 75% between 2005 and 2020

Driven by exports of petroleum and edible and non-edible oils, manufacturing and tourism

INC published in 2000

NC2 targeted for 2010, but published in 2011

Assisted through the GEF


National climate change priorities socio economic scenarios and the driving forces
National climate change priorities, socio-economic scenarios and the driving forces

Voluntary indicator of up to 40% reduction of GHG intensity of GDP relative to 2005, by 2020

Goal: decouple growth from emissions

Achievement measured by shift in development path

GDP growth essential to achieving goal

Targeted areas - EE, RE, Waste Management

Forest management and tree planting viewed as a critical backstop

Impacted by current fiscal and energy policies that impose price distortions on energy

Requires updated interpretation or amendment of development policies


Malaysia s climate change programs on technology development and transfer
Malaysia’s climate change programs on technology development and transfer

Ongoing cooperation with Singapore on environmental issues

Cooperative research programmes with the Korean government on forestry and energy

Cooperative agreement with Indonesia on forestry research - FRIM-FORDA

Looking ahead - ASEAN Working Group on Climate Change (AWGCC)

Preliminary stages of a cooperative agreement the Philippines on Energy

Barriers and constraints
Barriers and Constraints cap. building, tech. transfer and provision of finance, research and systematic observation and development of technical studies in Asia

Existing political framework

Current policy priorities and shifting policy landscapes

Human capacity (including language)

Readiness Financing

Dispersed, fragmentary and incomplete data

Shifting jurisdictions

Ad hoc mentality still prevalent


Key lessons learned
Key Lessons Learned cap. building, tech. transfer and provision of finance, research and systematic observation and development of technical studies in Asia

Importance of establishing a permanent institutional framework

Need to identify a network of institutional and individual data

Importance of establishing strong linkages between NC initiatives and adaptation and mitigation initiatives

Setting cutoff years for various activities reported.

Importance of matching funding and time to complete the NC

Importance of constant capacity enhancement in all relevant agencies and institutions
