Malaysia have many acts but there is no specific Flood Risk Act - this may somehow lead to overlapping of duties between the stakeholders. Most important, it also makes it difficult to do a proper Risk Management Plan (Flood and Mitigation Design).
As a 'non-technical person', I am amazed on the design storm analysis by DID/JPS - calculation (which is totally customized) coupled with Mann-Kendall analysis, researches on interrelationship with climate change (sea tides, forest, water, biodiversity, riparian etc) by NAHRIM, proposed mitigation structures by so many professional associations are splendid!
I propose that these agencies should be in the lead. I have faith in these fine Malaysians and I think it's time to put together our heads to come out with perhaps a Malaysian Flood Risk Act 2016 (maybe) and pass the bill in the Parliament - so that there will be no longer issues of who to do what.... most important..this is a business of saving lives in the future.
So who wants to be the champion?
