Abstract

he local governments in Malaysia have been tasked with conserving the environment and addressing ecological deficiencies. This paper explores three distinct Malaysian local governments’ commitment to the environment and their partnership strategies. This qualitative study has discovered that the selected local governments have similar environmental-related programmes, and the stakeholders’ engagement is evident in their localities. This study is essential to SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) and SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals) to foster the community-based efforts to increase environmental stewardship. Future research may include exploratory studies on the environmental commitments of local governments in Sabah and Sarawak.
