The Straits of Malacca is subjected to a great variety of environmental stresses
due to its strategic location as a major international shipping lane and the
concentration of agriculture, industry and urbanisation which predominate on
the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. This paper gives an overview of the study
conducted in the Malacca Straits as part of the GEF/UNDP/IMO Regional
Programme on the Prevention and Management of Marine Pollution in the
East Asian Seas, in particular pertaining to the identification of land and
sea-based sources of pollution in Malaysia which contributes to the pollution
load in the Straits, as well as the assessment of the relative contribution of
each source.
