SYNOPSIS

Our Malaysian cities are growing bigger in spatial and population terms. The total population in Malaysia in 2010 was 28.6 million, and is expected to be 32.4 million in 2020, while the percentage of urban population in Malaysia was 71% in 2010, and is expected to reach 77.2% in 2020 (Department of Statistics Malaysia, population projection based on the Population and Housing Census 2010, adjusted for under enumeration).

Adding to this, many cities in Malaysia face additional pressures from the impacts of rising sea levels and extreme weather events, bringing with them the risk of flooding or periods of water stress. During water stressed periods, temperatures may rise even further in the cities, due to the urban heat island effect. This Talk sets out a wide range of strategies paving the way to implement integrated urban water management (IUWM) in cities in Malaysia.
