Responding to the United Nations Development Program’s (UNDP) universal call to action, Malaysia is committing a serious effort to mobilise its SDG goals by 2030. In today’s constantly changing world, oftentimes, environmental stewardship takes a back seat in favor of development. To establish the aspiration, University Putra Malaysia’s Faculty of Forestry and Institute of Forestry Malaysia recently organised a colloquium to discuss the challenges posed by the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) development. In the resulting session, MIGHT’s Senior Vice President, En. Rushdi Abdul Rahim shared insights on how the 4IR could impact the industry. Meanwhile, touching on the pool of technologies that would advance progress toward the SDGs, En Rushdi provided event participants a fitting explanation on a number of innovative trends that are at work to aid Malaysia’s natural resource security agenda.
