Malaysia Hosts Asia Pacific Climate Week to Discuss and Act on Climate Crisis in the Region

Amidst the vibrant discussions and commitment showcased at the Asia Pacific Climate Week 2023 in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, a heartfelt commendation is due to the Government of Malaysia for its proactive role in organizing and hosting this crucial event. The commitment of stakeholders, experts, and policymakers from across the region reflects a collective determination to tackle the escalating climate challenges faced by the Asia Pacific.

Malaysia's Federal Minister for Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, rightfully emphasized the global nature of climate change, stressing the necessity for collaborative efforts. Malaysia's pledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 45% in 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 is commendable. The launch of the National Energy Transition Roadmap and the National Industrial Master Plan further underscores the nation's dedication to a sustainable future.
ο»Ώ
The thematic tracks of the event, spanning energy systems, urban and rural development, land use, oceans, and socio-economic dimensions, provide a comprehensive platform to address diverse climate action opportunities and challenges. The commitment of Malaysia’s State of Johor, as articulated by Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi, to collaborate across borders and involve various stakeholders is a testament to the region's shared responsibility in the face of climate change impacts.
ο»Ώ
As the Asia Pacific region grapples with the front lines of climate change, the Asia Pacific Climate Week serves as a beacon of hope. Simon Stiell, Executive Secretary of UN Climate Change, rightly points out the region's potential to be a climate pioneer, driving global efforts to combat climate change through green technologies and innovations.

The collaboration with global partners, including the UN Development Programme, the UN Environment Programme, and the World Bank, along with regional partners such as the Asian Development Bank, signifies a united front in catalyzing transformative climate solutions. The support from the Global Compact Network Malaysia & Brunei and the active involvement of UN Assistant Secretary-General Kanni Wignaraja and UNEP Regional Director Dechen Tsering further underscore the significance of this regional initiative.
ο»Ώ
In the countdown to COP28, the Asia Pacific Climate Week stands as a pivotal moment to unite policymakers, practitioners, businesses, and civil society toward transformative climate solutions. The spotlight on the Asia Pacific's potential and the call for sustained investment in climate adaptation and energy transitions are crucial steps toward a sustainable future. The world looks to the Asia Pacific region as a beacon of leadership and collaboration in the global fight against climate change.
