Why Do We Need to Declare a Climate Emergency in Malaysia?

Gabungan Darurat Iklim Malaysia (GDIMY) have released a letter calling upon the Government of Malaysia at the federal, state and local levels to declare a Climate Emergency in Malaysia, by no later than 16 September 2022. The coalition has also outlined 12 specific demands, including one to initiate a rapid decarbonisation trajectory for Malaysia with the phase-out of fossil fuel and adoption of 100% renewable energy for electricity. We speak to Ili Nadiah Dzulfakar, the Chairperson of Klima Action Malaysia (KAMY) which is part of GDIMY, to discuss what exactly the coalition is calling for.
