Abstract

Malaysia's greatest environmental problem is the lack of proper enforcement of existing environmental laws and regulations. This failure to enforce stems from an array of issues, including lack of trained personnel, lack of public support for addressing environmental issues, and a profit-first economic mentality that promotes business success over environmental regulation. This article compares two case studies on the palm oil and bauxite mining industries to evaluate the regulatory processes in place while providing an outlook on the future of Malaysia's natural environment.
