Penang Hills Watch Meets with Local Government Departments

On 24th October 2016, Penang Forum members had a meeting with a number of government agencies including Penang Island City Council (MBPP), Penang State Forestry Department (JPNPP), Department of Survey and Mapping Malaysia (JUPEM) and Penang Town and Country Planning Department (JPBDPP) where we explained the purpose of Penang Hills Watch (PHW) and demonstrated the online application.

The Penang Hills Watch initiative – using the USHAHIDI platform enables the public to report land clearing sightings to the platform in real-time

PHW suggested close cooperation with MBPP and other relevant government departments for mutual exchange of information, and our suggestion was well received at the meeting.
