Macaranga Wrap-Up: November 2023

As November draws to a close, we look-back at some of the top environmental news from the month past with Law Yao Hua, the co-founder of environmental journalism portal Macaranga. This month, we discuss how Sarawak is officially the first state in the country to enact an anti-climate change law, and why this is a significant move in our country, before we turn our attention to some of the findings in the Auditor-General's Special Audit on Forest Management and Environmental Impact report, that was just tabled in Parliament on the 22nd of November 2023. Finally we look forward to Macaranga's first physical event happening in December, Semai & Tuai 2023.
