Abstract

Environmental pollution of the rivers in terms of floods, droughts and landslides are the outcomes of the uncertain rainfall pattern due to climate change and it also contributes to the chemical contamination of the rivers along with the anthropogenic activities. The Langat River can also be polluted by the trans-boundary floods and precipitation in terms of the air pollution both in Malaysia and in the neighbour countries. Therefore, the water resource management related government and non-government institutes, business sector and civil society should have an effective participation for the better management of the river. Moreover, a regional platform could be useful in order to mitigate the impacts of atmospheric pollution as well as trans-boundary floods through sharing information, knowledge and expertise.
