Malaysia's Biodiversity Pledge: Nurturing Biodiversity Beyond 2030

Malaysia recently conducted a mid-term review of its National Policy on Biological Diversity (NPBD) 2016 - 2025, in response to the adoption of the Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) in December 2022. The new strategy was unveiled yesterday, the 24th of October 2023, and aims to fulfil global biodiversity targets by 2030. This is a crucial moment for Malaysia's dedication to conserving its natural heritage, and its involvement in the worldwide endeavour to safeguard biodiversity. We discuss Malaysia's incredible rich biodiversity, but also its significance within the evolving policy landscape of Malaysia, while also looking at the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in terms of protecting the rich biodiversity of our planet with Lakshmi Lavanya Rama Iyer, the Director of Policy & Climate Change at WWF-Malaysia.
