Putrajaya: ‘No EIA? No approval for project’

Putrajaya is mulling over a rigorous mechanism to prevent developers proceeding with construction before obtaining approval of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report.

Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment James Dawos responded to Kuala Terengganu MP Raja Kamarul Bahrin’s question as to why the ministry has not issued ‘stop work’ orders to developers who failed to submit EIA reports before proceeding with construction projects.
