MESSAGE “The key success factor of development of Low carbon society lies in the effective consensus building of the major stakeholders such as policy makers, public at large and business community”. Prof. Ho Chin Siong Project Manager Universiti Teknologi Malaysia

On behalf of the research members from the project for "Development of Low Carbon Society Scenarios for Asian Regions“, it is my pleasure to present our annual report for the second fiscal year (June 2012 - March 2013). This progress report presented the success story of our research team on how we are meeting our research objectives outlined in in our Record of discussion (ROD). In the second fiscal year, with the joint-effort between researchers from Japan and Malaysia, we achieved great achievement by publishing the “Low Carbon Society Blueprint for Iskandar Malaysia” which received endorsement by the Prime Minister of Malaysia in December 2012. In addition, the team has also carried out exhibition and presentation at Side event at the 18th Conference of the Parties to the UNFCC (COP18). Besides, the team also organized symposiums and workshops allowed knowledge exchange, dialogues, and networking among the Low Carbon Asia researchers and policy makers in the global arena. Apart from the above, many researchers are also involved in technical tours of best practice projects and field works in Iskandar Malaysia and abroad. Being researchers and academicians, we have been actively involved in the publication of journal papers, reports and brochures. Overall we have made good progress in meeting our targets to outline the methodology to formulate LCS scenarios which is appropriate for Malaysian context and also setting up the research framework, research team, preparation of Low carbon actions, preliminary data collection and modeling work. We acknowledge there are still areas where we must improve the way in which we manage the budget and disseminate our research output, seeking to maximize results to the research community and implementation agencies. I would like to record my gratitude to Corporate Service and International Division of Economic Planning Unit Prime Minister’s Department, Ministry of Higher Education, Department of Town and Country Planning Peninsular Malaysia, Iskandar Regional Development Authority, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia and all researchers of Low Carbon Society scenarios of SATREPS project and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) for the strong and solid support that has been extended throughout the fiscal year. Model building and capacity building are important milestones in this project; however the key success factor of development of Low carbon society lies in the effective consensus building of the major stakeholders such as policy makers, public at large and business community. Consensus building empowers the public involvement in ensuring the social inclusiveness and pragmatic proposals.

MESSAGE “During the accomplishment of this project, we received the support of many institutions and people than just the team members. ” Prof. Yuzuru Matsuoka Project Leader Kyoto University

Since the start of the project for "Development of Low Carbon Society Scenarios for Asian Regions", about two years has past. During this period, we have had a lot of progress. The dissemination of “Low Carbon Society Blueprint for Iskandar Malaysia 2025” during the 18th Conference of Parties (COP18) of UNFCC held in November, 2013, Doha, Qaṭar, is one of the examples. We have had progress meetings 6 times, conducted air quality monitoring, household survey, landfill survey and solid waste generation surveys. In this annual report, they are described one by one in detail. Now, the project is entering into the second stage, i.e. the stage of conceptual design to detailed design of LCS. Within the “12 Actions Toward Low Carbon Iskandar Malaysia” in the “Low Carbon Society Blueprint for Iskandar Malaysia 2025”, we proposed more than 250 programs, as potential and feasible measures for realizing low carbon Iskandar Malaysia. We are now concentrating our efforts to evaluate and assess quantitatively, with intensive discussion from comprehensive view points, with Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA), and related local authorities. Another point we are now pouring our effort, is to evolve this Iskandar Malysia LCS activity, to more national-wise and Asian-wise movement. Of cause, it depends on the advance of the Iskandar story, but at least even now, several Asian national governments are now very much interested in the Iskandar LCS progress. Already, we held three times the international Low Carbon Society symposium for sharing our experience with Asian colleagues, as well as frequent visits to all over the world in order to demonstrate the project, and will continue them. During the accomplishment of this project, we received the support of many institutions and people than just the team members. I am very grateful to these supports and also expecting the continuation, hoping the activities of this project will support the realizing of sustainable and comfortable Asian Low Carbon Societies.

Iskandar Malaysia at a Glance

West Malaysia

East Malaysia

Iskandar Malaysia (IM) is a visionary economic region in Johor that was established in 2005 as one of the catalyst development corridors to spur growth of the Malaysian economy. Covering an area of 221,634 hectares (2,216.3 km2), IM is the largest single development project ever to be undertaken within the Southeast Asia region. Strategically located at the southernmost tip of Mainland Asia to tap on a vast market of about 1 billion people within a 6-hour flight radius, IM is set to become an integrated global node that synergies with growth of the global City-state

of Singapore and Indonesia. To that end, it has been projected that population in IM will double from 1.5 million in 2005 to over 3 million by 2025, supported by a stable 7-8% annual GDP growth that is primarily driven by services and manufacturing. It is vital that the targeted strong growth is achieved while keeping IM’s carbon emission level at bay, inline with IM’s vision to be “A strong sustainable metropolis of international standing”.

INTRODUCTION

The Project Development of Low Carbon Society Scenarios For Asia Regions Project Background Being a region that encompasses half the humanity and is poised to double its world GDP share to 52% by 2050, Asia is witnessing transformative economic growth and sociopolitical change, and putting on forever greater global economic and strategic weight. In a world of increasing climatic uncertainty and resource constraint, a growing global footprint demands greater global responsibilities among Asian economies, particularly in promoting regional cooperation and taking ownership of the global economic and environmental agenda. It is in this light that the project of Development of Low Carbon Society Scenarios for Asian Regions is initiated under the auspices of SATREPS. A joint effort between Japan and Malaysia, the 5-year research program that commenced in July 2011 brings together a team of multidisciplinary researchers from Kyoto University, the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES), Okayama

Due to the progress achieved by Malaysia (especially through UTM’s research on Iskandar Malaysia’s Low Carbon Society Blueprint, led by Professor Dr. Ho Chin Siong), the Malaysian Delegation (Chau Loon Wai from UTM, Engku Ahmad Kamel Engku Taib from IRDA, Dr. Alias Rameli from JPBDSM) have been invited to a high-level meeting with Mr. Toshio Kato, Secretary General of the Regional Revitalization Bureau, Cabinet Secretariat, Government of Japan. The seminar took 8 days, started on 11th February 2013 until 19th February 2013. A high-level formal “FutureCity” framework needs to be established in Malaysia involving the Cabinet of Ministers to ensure the prestige of cities to be selected as “FutureCity”, following which a concrete selection framework (involving clear selection criteria, selection process and timeline) and selection panel need to be set up. Close communication between the Malaysian and Japanese sides need to be established and maintained for mutual learning and for potential formation of a global “FutureCity” network.

Outcome This seminar has gave us a very clear idea about the “FutureCity” Initiative, which is very likely the next big thing in urban and regional planning; the idea is catching up and spreading fast around the world with Japan being at the forefront. More than that, we`re also able to obtained a clear direction towards establishing a Malaysia “FutureCity” Initiative with collaboration with JPBDSM and IRDA : The Malaysian team has in fact discussed the action plan towards launching the Malaysian “FutureCity” Initiative at the 2013 World Town Planning Day in November 2013 and recommending Iskandar Malaysia to be the first formal “Future City” in Malaysia; Progress and achievement of the IMLCSBP 2025 project which is led by UTM’s FAB (Project Leader: Prof. Dr. Ho Chin Siong) has been shared with many participants and agencies in Japan, with copies of the IMLCSBP 2025 SPM distributed to participants and officials from the OECD, Japan Ministry of Environment, Japan Government’s Cabinet Secretariat, UN-ECLAC and government agencies responsible for urban planning and governance from various countries.

FOCUS GROUP DISCUSSIONS

In ensuring effective implementation and social inclusiveness, empowering the local community through public engagement in the policy making process is vital. We strongly believe that for any success development, the society itself is a critical factor. Every single policy design needs to gain residents’ consent as these plans will affect their lifestyle: how they work, live and play. Therefore, focus group discussion (FGD) is an important component which always been considered during the creation of comprehensive low carbon society policies in Iskandar Malaysia. Subsequent to the positive feedbacks from the two series of FGDs on year 2011, we were organizing additional four FGDs in this year. The 3rd and 4th focus group discussions have been arranged to obtain agreement and build consensus with IRDA and 150 stakeholders from public and private sectors on the formation of 12 LCS policy actions for Iskandar Malaysia. The program started with an introduction on the background of low carbon Iskandar Malaysia to stakeholders.

29

ANNUAL REPORT 2012/2013

Followed by the group discussion, where stakeholders were assembled according to six different clusters with six themes namely, 1)transportation; 2)economy and institutional framework; 3)social development; 4)urban planning; 5)building and energy and 6)waste management. Participants were free to choose any cluster based on their preference. The discussion of each group was supported by facilitators and assistants. The next 5th and 6th focus group discussions were organized to invite the suggestions and comments from the governmental agencies and private agencies (different groups from the 1st – 4th FGDs) on LCS policy plan for Iskandar Malaysia. A talk had been given to the participants explaining the research area, main objectives, targets, involved research teams, research output, project framework, project organization, previous programs and events, modeling, potential mitigation, current progress and the structure of the blueprint to enhance their understandings of the low carbon project in Iskandar Malaysia. The participations were then divided into several groups to discuss on the 12 LCS Actions according to their expertise.


THE REVIEW OF THE YEAR 2012/2013

Outcome The suggestions and feedbacks from the focus group discussions is essential in the process of policymaking for Iskandar Malaysia low carbon society blueprint. The discussions focus on the view of stakeholders and agencies towards various carbon mitigation policies, their significance, feasibility, priority, the implementing agency and source of financial support, as well as obtaining mutual understanding and information sharing from them. Suggestions and valuable comments received from IRDA, various stakeholders of government and private agencies were collected and incorporated into the low carbon society blueprint. Consensus building and public participation are very vital in ensuring feasibility implementation of low carbon measures in Iskandar Malaysia.

The survey is carried out as part of SATREPS Development of Low Carbon Society Scenarios for Asian Regions, finding better ways for sustainable waste management in Iskandar Malaysia. The landfill investigation involved researchers from Okayama University and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. The team was receiving strong supports by Southern Waste Management (SWM) Environment Sdn. Bhd., waste management concessionaire for southern region of Malaysia (includes Iskandar Malaysia). The survey was carried out with the following objectives: 1. 2. 3. 4.

5.

To identify physical composition of municipal solid waste (MSW) To estimate the characterization of waste by consumption type. To capture amount of recyclable material in the generated waste. To understand characteristic of Malaysia waste in term of moisture, combustible and ash contents through laboratory test To plan an alternative solid waste management that meets the characteristic of generated waste

Waste examination begins by sampling 120kg of MSW from a ton of total waste through quartering method. The 120kg sample MSW was then manually sorting into 12 categories of waste composition. Some of these waste samples were brought back to the laboratory for detail analysis. The result indicates organic content of MSW is large in particular of food and paper waste. In addition, the MSW is quite wet that would lead to difficulty of combustion. Furthermore, the team found a large portion of the MSW which can be recycled and reused prior to the disposal. These scientific information will be apply in the low carbon society policymaking for Iskandar Maysia.
