Malaysia: Water & Wastewater Treatment Email
Written by Katja Rauhala  

As the country grows so does the problem of providing sufficient clean water to the population and until about five decades ago, Malaysia's waste disposal system was no different from what is still found in many developing countries. Malaysia’s 27 million people generate about six million tons of sewage every year, most of which is treated and released into the rivers. Proper treatment of sewerage is paramount as about 98% of Malaysia’s fresh water supply comes from surface water. Raw surface water becomes contaminated as a result of excessive and indiscriminate discharge of wastewater directly from households or factories to drains and into rivers with minimal or no treatment. This impairment of water quality greatly reduces the usability of the water for ordinary purposes or in a worst case scenario creates a hazard to public health through poisoning or the spread of diseases. To combat this, around 8,000 public sewage treatment plants, 500 network pumping stations, 17,000 kilometers of underground sewerage pipes and half a million household septic tanks connected to the sewers. In response to the increasing demand for a better and effective sanitation services, private companies were encouraged by the government to build wastewater management systems.

Written by Katja Rauhala  Updated on 19 July 2009  

Joint Working Party on Trade and Environment: The Impact Of Monitoring Equipment On Air Quality Management Capacity In Developing Countries: OECD Trade and Environment Working Paper No. 2006-02: Reflecting the desire for cleaner air, many developing countries have enacted clean air laws similar to those of developed nations, although to date most of these laws have been poorly enforced. A key starting point to better enforcement is obtaining comprehensive and reliable air-quality monitoring data. This report explores the impacts of air quality monitoring programmes implemented over the last decade in five developing countries: Morocco, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, and India. These case studies also examine the role of procurement of specialised equipment, usually imported, associated with the various air quality monitoring programmes.
