All-Party Parliamentary Group Malaysia on the Sustainable Development Goals (APPGM-SDG)

APPGM-SDG is a bipartisan initiative driven to implement the SDGs in the Parliamentary constituencies. The SDGs are implemented through the analysis of issues and solutions, policy research, facilitating multi-stakeholder partnerships, including raising awareness and building capacity at the local level.

Our team is made up of parliamentarians, academics, solution providers, and civil society activists.

“leaving no one behind” BY LOCALIZING Sustainable Development Goals

The work of the APPGM SDG is progressing well since 2020 and for 2022 we have many new opportunities for localizing SDGs in Malaysian society.

 
We have good teamwork among the Members of Parliament from both sides of the divide. We all share some common interest concerning people at the constituency level. We also recognize that many unresolved issues impact ordinary people including the devastation of both Covid and now more recently the floods. These have had an impact on the economy, the environment, and the emotional well-being of all the different communities.

 
The APPGM SDG Secretariat worked out the 2022 Framework and Priorities. The most significant in this framework paper are the seven major thrusts of the APPGM SDG work for 2022. This paper will guide the implementation of our work over the next 12 months.  

Seven major thrusts of APPGM-SDG work for 2022

Promotion of SDGs at district level.

Parliamentary policy discussions based on the research findings (mapping and situational analysis).

SDG mapping of local needs, prioritization, and situational analysis.

SDG solution projects (micro) as pointers to long term solutions and need to be reviewed for sustainability.

Strengthening partnerships with government agencies, civil society, academic institutions, and the private sector.

Strengthen participation at the regional and international level for SDG related events via the HLPF and inter-parliamentary groups on SDGs.

Strengthening APPGM-SDG office coordination, supervision, deliverables, and governance structure.


YB Dato Sri Rohani Abdul Karim
CHAIR OF APPGM-SDG

Our Members of Parliament recognize the value of localizing SDGs as they impact people in our constituencies. We seek the value of the local mapping of needs and the micro-SDG solution projects. Our MPs are securing opportunities to localize SDGs as well as raise policy matters during their speeches and interventions in Parliament. Many of the SDG concern cuts across the political divide especially as it addresses economic, social, and environmental concerns.

YB Maria Chin Abdullah

Deputy chair of appgm-sdg

Our Members of Parliament recognize the services of both academicians and civil society leaders in undertaking grassroots impact projects which are bringing direct benefit to local communities. While we face some difficulties in engaging with federal and state agencies at the district level, we have seen good partnership models during the local policy dialogue sessions.

prof Datuk Dr. Denison Jayasooria
HEAD OF Secretariat OF APPGM-SDG

Our Members of Parliament are the pioneers of APPGM-SDG in Malaysia through innovations in grounded research at the constituency level by mapping local needs, drawing priorities for solution intervention through micro-projects as well as policy advocacy. This is a smart partnership among MPs, government, civil society and local communities.
