Our Secret Weapon


Accelerating urban action for a carbon-free world, 5 Malaysian cities take an integrated approach to low carbon development

Cities represents over 70 per cent of global carbon dioxide emissions, with transport, buildings, energy, and waste management accounting for the bulk of carbon emissions within urban spaces.

It is projected that by 2050, over two-thirds of our global population will be living in megacities, with 90% of urban population growth will be centered within the Asian and African regions.

As we experience a rise in both rapid economic and population growth, so to will there be a corresponding rise in energy and resource consumption – generating enormous quantities waste in the tonnage.

Cities will be the main frontline in mitigating Climate Change.

On the 2th of October, 2021, The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) seeks to shine a spotlight on low carbon initiatives and developments in Malaysian cities through its UNDP Climate Change Adaptation Portal, facilitated by the GTALCC Project.

E-Bicycle Handover Ceremony by MESTECC to Putrajaya Corporation under the GTALCC Project

GTALCC Kicks Off Low Carbon Mobility (Cycling) Initiative

GTALCC’s Low Carbon Mobility (Cycling) Initiative kicked off with a campaign to promote the usage of electric bicycles in 3 offices in Putrajaya and Cyberjaya. This effort is to reduce the use of cars and motorcycles for short trips and patrol in the cities – 5 units were handed over to Putrajaya Corporation and 3 units to SEDA Malaysia on 6th August 2019 at Kompleks Perbadanan Putrajaya. 4 more units will be handed over to Majlis Perbandaran Sepang later this month.


In Putrajaya, the ceremony was graced by YBrs. En. Ahmad Farid from MESTECC, YBhg. Datuk Dr. Aminuddin President of Putrajaya Corporation, Mr. Niels Knudson; Deputy Resident Representative of UNDP, Ir. Dr. Sanjayan CEO of SEDA Malaysia and senior management from PPj, UNDP and SEDA.

Starting with 5 units of ebikes as a pilot, Putrajaya Corporation intends to use more ebikes for its enforcement rounds and for commuting to meetings within Putrajaya to reduce local emissions in the City.  As the E-bikes provides pedal assistance, riders will enjoy more comfort and less fatigue when cycling in tropical Malaysia. This is part of GTALCC’s work to demonstrate low carbon projects at cities and support Putrajaya Green City 2025.
