National Energy Globe Award Malaysia 2015

21. May 2015

Congratulations to Institute Pribumi Malaysia Sarawak / Indigenious Peoples Institute Malaysia Sarawak (IPIMAS), this year’s recipient of the National Energy Globe Award Malaysia with their project “Water management system and river conservation program”.

With more than 170 participating countries and over 1500 project submissions annually, the Energy Globe Award is today’s most prestigious environmental prize worldwide.

The jury chose IPIMAS for restoring the natural vegetation and watershed that were destroyed by years of commercial logging that caused serious depletion of forest resources and environmental degradation in the Mudung Abun area in Sarawak. IPIMAS implemented a watershed management system, created protection areas, launched a river conservation program and planted a communal forest.

The Austrian Ambassador, HE Mr. Christophe Ceska, and the Commercial Counsellor, Mr. Werner Somweber, had the honour to present this prestigious award to Ms. Mariam Dom and her colleagues of IPIMAS in a solemn ceremony held on 20th May 2015.

ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA  congratulates IPIMAS on this outstanding achievement!
