Budget 2023: Prioritising the Environment Through Inclusive & Sustainable Economic Growth?

Malaysia's Prime Minister and Finance Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim retabled Budget 2023 last Friday on the 24th of February, after the first tabling in October 2022 by the previous Ismail Sabri administration was thrown out, due to parliament being dissolved. With a new unity government at the helm, there are significant changes to what was initially tabled, with the newly consolidated Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change (NRECC) ministry receiving about RM6.53 billion in allocations, said to be an increase of 8.4 percent from last year. Is this a sign of the government's commitment to combat environmental issues and climate change in the country? We dissect Budget 2023 to discuss if conservation of the environment and inclusive and sustainable growth was prioritised, with Meenakshi Raman, the President of Sahabat Alam Malaysia.
