The United Nations Development Programme is working to facilitate the increase in financing of protected areas in Malaysia and the region. Protected areas are classified as covering terrestrial and marine areas. The need to increase financing is due to that four of nine planetary boundaries have been crossed as the result of human activities, which are extinction rate, deforestation, ocean pollution and carbon dioxide On a global scale, protected areas are severely underfinanced where the need is ranged between USD300 to 400 billion a year. Currently, it is estimated at only USD50 billion.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, working in 177 countries and territories.
UNDP is fully engaged in supporting Malaysia’s national priorities and the implementation of national medium and long-term development plans such as the 11th Malaysia Plan and other sectoral development policies and strategies.
Today, all of UNDP projects in Malaysia are nationally executed, involving more than ten federal ministries and agencies and located in more than 6 states.
