Macaranga Wrap-up: October 2020

In this month's roundup, SL Wong and Law Yao Hua, the editors of Macaranga.org, tackle the nation's water pollution woes, and discuss why we need to continue demanding for better monitoring and enforcement by the authorities. Next, we discuss the degazettement of the Kuala Langat Forest Reserve, tying it to why the National Forestry Act should be amended to make public consultation compulsory in all states. Finally, we look forward to Budget 2021 which will be tabled on the 6th of November, and share the Budget wishlist of Malaysian conservationists.
