Transcript of Water Issues in Malaysia

By: Kendall & Jessica Water Issues in Malaysia Water Changes Everything Work Cited Conserving Freshwater Habitats Integrated River Basin Management Sustainable Water Use There is obviously enough water for the people in Malaysia, but the shortages come from the fact that most of the water is unsustainable.

Mainstreaming freshwater habitats into law or other policies then the people in Malaysia will take the matter more seriously and will help conserve natural resources. The habitats that have been contaminated with unsustainable water need to be restored to there natural state of being with the communities help.
Maintaining ecosystems that are able to function is a very important factor in a healthy environment. The IRBM is like a well thought out plan that helps keep the ecosystem thriving, and can also support anything that goes wrong. It's an investment that will help you in a long run. Each person in Malaysia uses or has the ability to use 5,000 meters of renewable water per year. The amount of water that is available is not the problem, it's how they take care and reserve their resources.
Malaysia is losing 40% of water from contamination.
Since Malaysia gets it's water from their forests and wetlands, ecosystems are being threatened because of contamination. What you can do: One way to help preserve the water is to conserve the river basins. This will restore all of the freshwater habitats and replenish the ecological processes within the main river basins. Charitywater.org. Forever, 2006. Web. 2 Nov. 2012.
