River Basin Management Plans
Managing our Shared Waters is a document outlining the cooperation arrangements between the two jurisdictions, north and south, involved in implementing the directive in our shared waters.
The plan takes into account the potential impacts of climate change.
Reports assessing the impacts of the plan and the measures proposed have been produced.
River basin planning involves everyone who is interested in, or may be affected by, the water environment and the way in which it is managed. The public participation section explains how anyone interested in local water issues can identify their concerns to both statutory agencies and non-governmental organisations and have these addressed at a local level.

INTEGRATED WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT IN MALAYSIA (IWRM) : AN EFFECTIVE INSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK
In order to achieve success in water resources development, a holistic approach such as the Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) is needed in water resources planning and development in Malaysia. In view of that, the Malaysia government has played an important role through its policies, plans and programmes. For example, the Integrated River Basin Management (subset of IWRM) in water planning and development was introduced in the Ninth Malaysia Plan (2006-2010) and National Physical Plan (2006-2020). Apart from that, the participation of all stakeholders is a prerequisite to attain the goals of IWRM.
