Management and Science University (MSU) has entered into a new collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and Water (Kementerian Alam Sekitar dan Air, KASA) Department of Irrigation and Drainage (Jabatan Pengairan dan Saliran, JPS).

 

The newly signed MoU encompasses research, development and innovation; hydrology and water resource; management of rivers and their corridors; consultation and advice; skills and training; as well as production and publication of high-impact journals.

 

The smart partnership shall be seeing MSU and JPS collaborating in various community engagement activities drawn to contribute towards achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). A pilot programme will be the building of a Sungai Damansara River Trail through combined effort by the faculties and schools of Management and Science University (MSU).

 

Professor Tan Sri Dato’ Wira Dr Mohd Shukri Ab Yajid spoke on the University’s culturalizing role. Environmental sustainability being one of the ten pillars at MSU, its active nurture across the University seeks to develop caring for the Earth among all MSUrians. Whilst concepts such as the river trail is a good adaptation from sustainability practices of advanced countries, the Sungai Damansara River Trail to be built by MSU is in fact a natural progression from the record-setting preceding effort on the Damansara River stretch running behind the MSU main campus grounds in Shah Alam Section 13.

 

 

“We will be collaborating with all NGOs including Friends of Rivers Malaysia, whose sustainable-river model shall benchmark MSU’s own,” said the MSU President.

 

The signing reflects MSU’s long-term commitment towards environmental appreciation and sustainable development, begun years prior and officially launched by the MSU Environmental and Sustainability Projects (MESP). In the MESP’s fold are River Revival and MyCoral by MSU’s International Medical School (IMS), MyTree by the School of Hospitality and Creative Arts (SHCA), and My Mountain by MSU’s Student and Career Development (SCD) Department.

 

 

Developing the mindset crucial to achieving the UNSDGs is the commitment to producing human capital made better by their MSU education; holistic, balanced, well-rounded graduates who are entrepreneurial as well as environmentally concerned.

Management and Science University (MSU) currently ranks in the QS Asia Top 200, World Top 300, and Times Higher Education Top 400 University for environmental impact.

 

Trails for cleaner rivers

 

 

Thanking the University for its commitment to the environmental cause, keynote speaker Dato’ Seri Ir Dr Zaini Ujang congratulated MSU for ranking 9th in the country out of the 124 universities available.

 

The MSU-KASA MoU project based on collaboration, public participation, and creative funding seeks to build 10,000km eco-tourism-generating trails by 2030. Malaysia currently records a 500km trail in combined distances, including the 10km existing in the Federal Administrative Territory of Putrajaya.

 

Sustainable trails are ecologically sustainable, economically viable trails valued and supported by the public. Their sustainability criteria include good for both the trail and the users as well as the environment. Water flow and drainage are their key factors. Building the trails close to populated areas should hinder river-clogging through indiscriminate dumping by polluters, and encourage public vigilance of the rivers while getting healthy from the walking exercise.

 

Malaysia’s more famous existing local trails are in Broga and the Titiwangsa Range; but unlike the motorized, non-motorized, and wilderness trails in the USA, for example, the ones in the 10,000km pipeline for Malaysia shall be river and non-river trails. Eliminating cause for concern over land ownership is KASA's Department of Irrigation and Drainage (JPS) gazette stating that land within twenty metres on both sides of a river is reserve.

 

Besides the beautifying outcome of clean rivers with drinkable water, the income generating potential of trails was also highlighted; exemplified by the United States of America, where trails of 158,000 miles generate some nine billion USD yearly through 84 million users creating 143,000 jobs.  

 

The keynote address concluded with an Amit Kalantri quote, that a river carries not just water but also life.

 

Signing the MoU, witnessed by MSU President Professor Tan Sri Dato’ Wira Dr Mohd Shukri Ab Yajid and KASA Secretary General Dato’ Seri Ir Dr Zaini Ujang, were MSU Senior Vice-President for Endowment and Communication Dato’ Rosli Yusof and JPS Director General Dato’ Ir Nor Hisham Ghazali.

 

 

The guests of honour list included KASA Deputy Secretary General for Water Puan Azizah Ariffin and JPS Deputy Director General for Business Sector Dato’ Ir Mohd Azmi Ismail. Also attending was National Hydraulic Research Institute of Malaysia (NAHRIM) Director General Dato’ Ir Dr Hj Md Nasir Md Noh.
