Are you concerned about the forests that provide crucial ecosystem services (including water supply) to the Klang Valley?
Learn more and give your comments to save the Selangor State Park from impacts of the proposed Kuala Lumpur Outer Ring Road (KLORR).
Come attend a Public Briefing on the KLORR based on the Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIA), by WWF-Malaysia.


The KLORR Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIA) is available for public review and comments. The proposed alignment of the KLORR will cut through some parts of the Selangor State Park, a park that provides vital ecosystem services to the people residing in the Klang Valley. The park acts as the main water catchment forests, providing water to Klang Valley residents and harbours rich biodiversity. It is an environmentally sensitive area.

If you are concerned about the development of this road within the Selangor State Park, please take this opportunity to review the DEIA (Executive Summary) at http://gis.doe.gov.my/eia2/Upload_folder/Ex_Su/ExecutiveSummaryklorr.pdf and provide comments to the Department of Environment by 3rd February, 2012.
