The commitment was stated by Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Deputy Minister, Isnaraissah Munirah Majilis, who represented Malaysia at the High-Level Segment in the 25th Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC COP25), from Dec 10 to 12 in Madrid, Spain.
