Malaysia Water Partnership is embarking on a new strategy to achieve that: by proposing changes at the highest level of committees chaired by the Prime Minister/Deputy Prime Minister and attended by Menteri Besar/Chief Minister e.g. Majlis Sumber Air Negara (MSAN) or Majlis Negara Kerajaan Tempatan (MNKT).
100 participants from Department of Irrigation & Drainage (DID) Malaysia and Malaysia Water Partnership are intending to translate consensus at forums into changes on the ground, by proposing policy changes at the highest level of the government.
Through a Stakeholder Consultative Workshop on River Pollution in Dewan Baiduri, Wisma Sumber Asli, Putrajaya on 27 May 2013, DID Malaysia and Malaysia Water Partnership is trying to obtain feedback from stakeholder groups on new policies which will be proposed to Government, to tackle sources of river pollution
The results of this workshop will be a policy papers which will be presented to the National Water Resources Council (MSAN) or Majlis Negara untuk Kerajaan Tempatan (MNKT). Each policy paper will recommend specific actions to control each pollution source.
