Abstract

The Langat Basin lies adjacent to and to the south of the Klang Valley, Malaysia's most highly developed urban center, where the nation's capital, Kuala Lumpur, is situated. The proposed new administrative capital, Putra Jaya, the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang, the multimedia super corridor, and a high technology park will all be located in the Basin. Innovative new concepts are being applied in the development of Putra Jaya and the new KLIA. Basin-wide environmental management will become increasingly crucial for the long-term success of all the investments made in the Basin to date, as well as for the investments that will be made in future. The Institute for Environment and Development (LESTARI) has embarked on a long-term project in the Langat Basin that aims to provide the framework that will enable the tracking of progress toward the achievement of a sustainable pattern of development in the Basin. It will be based on environmental management practices that take into account the manner in which ecosystems work.
