Stewardship for A Healthy Kinta River Basin Through Green Living Practices

Currently, Sungai Kinta in Perak is only evaluated through the Department of Environment’s (DOE) Water Quality Index (WQI) system with the latest report recorded reading of 83 (Class II, clean) (EQR, 2020). 

This project aims to achieve Healthy Kinta River Basin in long term by redefining the definition of healthy rivers in line with living river concept. Healthy Kinta River Basin consists of three aspects which are physico-chemical river water quality (PCR WQ), biological water quality (BWQ) and stakeholder engagement (SE). 

This project will support community and stakeholders’ stewardship of Kinta River Basin by implementing various community-based initiatives including empowering them on green living practices and river monitoring plan.
