The Sustainability Shift

Updated: Apr 9, 2023

Discover how Malaysia can transition to a sustainable future in The Sustainability Shift: Refashioning Malaysia's Future. In this book, I explore the environmental threats facing Malaysia and the urgent need for a holistic and practical approach to sustainability. The problems facing humanity - from environmental degradation to the threat of ecological collapse - require an urgent response from individuals, businesses and national governments.

I also argue that Malaysia, as a resource-rich economy, can make an important contribution to these global efforts by implementing sustainable policies and practises. This book challenges the fragmented thinking and inadequate science that often underpin national policies and institutions. Instead, it shows how reforming Malaysia's institutional hardware, software and 'heartware' can help promote an inclusive and sustainable society while also benefiting economically. With its rich tropical rainforest and mega-diverse species, Malaysia has the potential to be a world leader in sustainability, and The Sustainability Shift provides a compelling roadmap towards this goal.
