Malaysia signed the Global Methane Pledge in 2021, but the implications of signing for national action on methane emissions remains unclear. This book compares and contrasts the existing methane emissions datasets from global, national, and corporate sources, including assessments of data uncertainties and of mitigation efforts led by the top two methane-emitting sectors, which are oil and gas and palm oil. The book then presents an investigation of methane emissions governance processes among key government institutions and corporate actors, then outlines recommendations to further advance methane emission reduction efforts in Malaysia.
Policy Brief: Promoting Progress on Methane Emissions Reductions in Malaysia
As a follow up to review of methane emission datasets and policy frameworks governing Malaysia, a summarised document was developed to provide recommendations to relevant stakeholders – government agencies, industry players, and civil societies.
Infosheet: Challenges and Opportunities in Malaysian Landfills and the Waste Sector
Malaysia heavily relies on landfilling as a method of waste disposal, with ~90% of waste ending up in landfills. This infosheet offers a brief overview on the country’s third highest methane emitting sector, which lies within the waste industry.
METHANE AS A POLICY PRIORITY
ls methane reduction well-articulated in Malaysia’s climate strategies? Our researchers uncover the challenges and opportunities behind methane emissions governance within the national policy landscape.
LET’S TALK ABOUT METHANE: MALAYSIA
Explore the who’s and the what’s of methane emissions specific to the Malaysian context – can you guess which sectors emit the most of this greenhouse gas?
REDUCING METHANE IN THE OIL & GAS SECTOR
As presented in several conferences, the anticipation of our upcoming policy paper is underpinned by a comprehensive literature review on the opportunities for methane reduction in the oil and gas sector.
