Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change Minister Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad said he will look into pressing issues under his ministry to meet the people’s expectations.

He said his ministry now needed to look into and resolve issues of public concern that were previously under the supervision of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, as well as the Ministry of Environment and Water.

“This portfolio requires me to focus on the issues of climate change, floods, the environment, energy and so on. The people are now really concerned about these matters. In the past, people just talked about it without understanding the impact, but now they begin to understand.


“Give me some time to look into what needs to be done, before we make any announcements, we will determine what are the urgent issues,” said Nik Nazmi, who began his official duties at his office at Wisma Sumber Asli today.

Nik Nazmi said his focus now was to ensure that the ministry would continue to move forward and make the green and renewable energy sector a success.

“Our focus now is to move forward, but we have to balance it to make it equitable and inclusive. This means that when we make the transition, we can’t leave the people behind and as such the well-being of the B40s will be our focus as well,” he said.
