As a participating member state of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Malaysia has been actively engaged in the annual Conference of Parties (COP) which is a gathering of all member states to review and monitor the goals of the UNFCCC, in particular and as of 2015, this goal has been to limit the rise in global temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels, and to pursue means necessary to limit the increase to 1.5 °C.


Malaysia released its first Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) in 2016 during COP 21 which was revised earlier this year and states our commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity of GDP by 45% by 2030 relative to the emissions intensity of GDP in 2005.


In our first episode, IEN invites its multinational staff members, comprising of Yamona Segar, Gregers Reimann and Regina Ng to discuss Malaysia's NDC commitments with a reflection on efforts and policies in fellow UNFCCC member states, Denmark (represented by Gregers Reimann) and Singapore (represented by Regina Ng).
