Link in bio ⬆️⬆️⬆️ A sharing from Head, Centre for Coastal and Marine Environment (CMER), Cheryl Rita on the marine plastic pollution and how to overcome the issue in a more extensive scope.
Some of us might not realise how critical the situation of this threat to the oceans is. In this video, you will understand and perhaps change your view about how profound plastics pollution affects the ocean's ecosystem.
Take your time to watch the video. It is definitely an eye-opener for us! We hope that we could together support the initiatives initiated by the Government on this matter to ensure success in the long term.
The way you start your day can affect your whole day. Thus, it is crucial to start your morning right. You may update and check your to-do list a night before to avoid anxiety or stress the following day. We wish you a productive day!
‘Bukan Semuanya Benar di Internet, Tidak Pasti Jangan Kongsi’ is a familiar tagline among Malaysians to avoid people sharing untruthful things on the internet.
MIMA urges you to get your facts right before you share your post with the public.
A new month has come with exciting events and challenges! Goodbye July, hello August! We are so excited to see what awaits us this month. Stay tuned with us!
Remember, we are still in this fight together, Malaysia! Stay safe by taking precautions such as wearing a mask, practising social distancing, avoiding crowded places, keeping rooms well ventilated, and always sanitising your hands. We can do this!
Day 5 (Final Day) - It was an honour for MIMA to be entrusted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) Malaysia to conduct not only one MTCP programme on Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning (CMSP) but two training sessions this year. The task was completed successfully today, with the wrap-up of the second CMSP programme today.
The CMSP framework and processes are being increasingly valued at various platforms for sustainable management of the multiple users and uses of oceans and coasts.
Ms. Cheryl Rita started the session today with a recap of the overall principles and guidelines on planning, adopting and implementing CMSP. This was followed by a continuation of the respective Country Presentations. Participants from Sri Lanka delivered their sharing by outlining the status, challenges and plans forward on implementing spatial planning in their country. This was followed by Iran, where their spatial planning showcased an evolvement from the ICZM framework. Representative from the Maldives highlighted how CMSP is valued in their tuna fishery resource management in the Indian Ocean.
To wrap-up the session, MoFA representative congratulated all the participants for their active involvement throughout the five-day training course and hoped that the bilateral relations and network will continue hereafter.
We are grateful for all the support received from MoFA, the MIMA CMER team, and all international participants who contributed to the programme's success.
We look forward to further enhancing and expanding our network by keeping the engagements going on CMSP!
Day 4 - We are delighted to have one of MIMA’s Distinguished Fellows, YBhg. Prof. Dato' Dr. Nor Aieni Haji Mokhtar as a resource person today. As a subject matter expert, she shared various essential perspectives on implementing marine spatial planning (MSP), including the relevance of the PESTEL Analysis framework that focuses on Political, Economic, Social, technological factors, as well as Environmental and Legal factors.
She also highlighted several case studies and the way forward to address conflicting uses in the process. She emphasised the importance of the marine ecosystem and healthy seas for the region and beyond.
A Q & A session and follow-up discussion were conducted with the respective international participants. Overall, it was a rich and enlightening session for the CMSP training.
Two of the participants, i.e., from Mauritius and India, have also completed their country presentations today. The rest of the participants will be sharing theirs tomorrow.
We look forward to the final day of the MTCP Programme tomorrow.
