Since we were established in 1972, WWF-Malaysia has been actively involved in policy and advocacy work. We have adopted various approaches and effective partnerships to promote policies, plans, programmes, and legislation that promote environmental protection and sustainable development. This includes engaging with various government ministries and departments at the federal, state, and local levels to influence decision makers to mainstream environmental and conservation considerations in development planning.

Advocating for change

Putting appropriate, effective, and timely policies in place are crucial to ensure that environmental conservation is carried out effectively. We engage in selective strategic policy interventions on national policy and legal issues to help leverage for bigger and long-term change.


Together, we can make a difference.


Planning to avoid conflict in land-use

Did you know that land-use change which happens hundreds and even thousands of kilometres away from us can affect us? Impacts due to poor land use include drinking water pollution, flash flooding, and landslides. Land-use planning and management are vital to help reduce land-use conflicts, conserve critical ecosystems, protect and manage environmentally sensitive habitats, restore degraded conservation areas, and ultimately, ensure a healthy and safe life for Malaysians.
