This book, which is an extract from the famous multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, offers quick entry to Malaysian environmental law and practise. Geographical factors, political, social, and cultural elements of environmental study, the sources and tenets of environmental law, environmental legislation, and the function of public authorities are all covered in a general introduction.

The first topic covered in the book's primary body is legislation enacted to specifically safeguard the ecosystem from pollution in the areas of air, water, refuse, soil, noise, and radiation. The administration of environment and cultural resources, such as landmarks, landscapes, parks and reserves, animals, farmland, forests, seafood, subsoil, and minerals, is then covered in this part. The implementation of zoning and land-use planning, liability laws, and administrative and court redress are additional treatments for environmental problems. The effects of regional and global laws and agreements on environmental control are also examined.

This book is an invaluable resource for environmental attorneys working on cases involving Malaysia because of its condensed yet academic style and the usefulness of the information it offers. This very helpful manual will be welcomed and valued for the study of comparative environmental law and policy by academics, students, business investors, and the different international organisations working in the field.
