A Review of Data, Policy and Transparency in Reducing Methane Emissions in Malaysia

by Matthew Ashfold, Helena Varkkey, Yong Jie Wong, Anjulie Razak, Shareen Yawanarajah, Mark Lunt and Emily Oi Yen Tse

ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute | Trends in Southeast Asia series

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.
