4 – 5 March 2024

The Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation, Nepal (DNPWC), and the Ministry of Road and Transport Development, Mongolia (MRTD), recently sent a letter to WWF-Malaysia expressing their interest in visiting the sustainable and environmentally friendly infrastructure project site of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project. The successful implementation of green infrastructure in projects such as the Genting-Gombak-Serendah for the ECRL project has attracted attention from delegations in Nepal and Mongolia. Together, we engaged in an experience-sharing session and technical site visit on March 4th and 5th.

The first day of the event involved a visit to the CCC-ECRL HQ office, where the guests were presented with insights about the ECRL project’s efforts to implement wildlife-friendly infrastructure. They learned about our strategies for managing wildlife and biodiversity, ensuring minimal disruption to the migration of wild animals and the fragmentation of habitats. A Q&A session provided an opportunity for in-depth discussion and clarification.

On the second day, the delegation visited Section 6, specifically the Wildlife Box Culvert located in the Kemasul Forest Reserve in Temerloh, Pahang. This site visit offered a firsthand look at the practical implementation of environmentally friendly infrastructure within the ECRL project.

We are committed to fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange in the realm of sustainable infrastructure development and conservation efforts, and we look forward to further opportunities for partnership and shared learning.
