#FGD 01 – Dedicated On-Road Bike Lane from Putrajaya Sentral to Putrajaya Business District

A focus group discussion was held on the 7th October 2020, as part of a collaboration between GTALCC and Urban SCALE. The hybrid event is a brainstorming session geared towards generating active discussions and fresh ideas on how to bolster the inclusivity and effectiveness of the proposed dedicated on-road bike lane connecting Putrajaya Sentral  and the Putrajaya Business District, as well as the question of how to transform Putrajaya’s thriving cycling culture from a purely recreational to an active low carbon transportation option.

Consultancy for Study of Greenhouse Gas Benefits of Mass Rapid Transit Kajang Line

A progress meeting was held with MRT Corp in Kuala Lumpur to update the progress of the study. The ground survey is still ongoing and will be completed in 2nd week of August 2020. Preliminary calculations show a reduction of 39,935 tonnes of CO2eq in 2019 which is equivalent to 8,681 cars removed from the road. The actual figures will be determined upon completion of the survey and data collection exercise.

Latest News

Malaysia is one of the most rapidly urbanising countries in Asia with more than 72% (as of 2010 Census) and Malaysia’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission levels are relatively high compared to other countries in the region at similar stages of development.

Subsequently, Malaysia’s per capita GHG emissions in 2007 were estimated to be 10.8 tCO2e with a national total of 292.9 million tCO2e. Of these emission sources more than half are directly related to urban settings – specifically electricity (up to 26% of GHG emissions), transportation (16%) and solid waste (12%). Since 2009, the transport sector has become Malaysia’s largest GHG emitter sector, and the second-biggest driver of energy demand in the economy.

Recognizing that sustainable economic development is closely tied to the ability of the country to move to a low carbon climate resilient development pathway, and that cities are natural partners to chart a low carbon growth path, the Goverment of Malaysia has formulated the Green Technology Applications for the Development of Low Carbon Cities (GTALCC) project. The project aspires to transform the way cities plan and develop so as to promote the application of green low carbon technologies and mobilise cities to fully contribute to the national low carbon development agenda.
