Our Development Plan

  • Our Development Plan
  • The IM Journey

The ultimate target of Iskandar Malaysia is to be “A Strong and Sustainable Metropolis of International Standing” by the year 2025.

Iskandar Malaysia is an important region economically and geographically. The region’s Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) requires the cooperation, support, active participation, commitment and sustained involvement of the many agencies, stakeholders and players at all levels. These actually include the federal, state and local governments, agencies, business communities, local leaders and communities, as well as global industry players.

In order to prepare the CDP, we consulted with the National Physical Planning Council, State Planning Committee and local authorities within Iskandar Malaysia to ensure every proposal in the CDP are aligned with national and state policies.

We have developed several blueprints with detailed guidelines to implement the CDP. Some of the blueprints introduced new moves and initiatives such as Low Carbon Society, human capital and safety and security.

In 2015, an enhanced version of the CDP was launched, namely the Iskandar Malaysia Comprehensive Development Plan II (CDPii).

Here, we adopt the elements from the Circle of Sustainability, a holistic and resilient ecosystem anchored by core elements comprising wealth generation, wealth sharing inclusiveness, resource optimization, and low carbon in a continuous cycle.

Wealth generation

We want to ensure our people living in this fast-growing region get stable and satisfying income. While our talents are highly skilled, we are able to produce a greater value of productivity across the nine promoted sectors.

Wealth sharing and inclusiveness

Iskandar Malaysia aims to achieve equal individual wealth for the community living in Iskandar Malaysia. We want our people to have greater purchasing power to move away from poverty and the huge gap between poor and rich people in the region. We want our people to enjoy higher incomes that lead to a better quality of life and to acquire assets to create more wealth.

Resource optimisation and low carbon

Iskandar Malaysia places high importance on the natural and man-made resources of the region. There are 5 focus areas that provide the direction towards achieving low carbon development and resource optimisation – balanced regional growth, protection and enhancement of natural ecology and green areas, optimising built environment, enhancing urban connectivity and mobility and lastly integrating infrastructure resources.

The Executive Summary of the CDPii is available here.

Core Sectors are sectors that have been long established in Iskandar Malaysia. They are stable economic drivers, with strong horizontal and vertical linkages and a complete ecosystem with high value added and employment contribution to the region. Not all core sectors are strong and vibrant, thus further actions are needed to strengthen them.

On the other hand, Emerging Sectors are newly induced. Their horizontal and vertical linkages with other industries have great potential to be developed to drive economic growth.

Awareness Before Change Programmes

IRDA has early on and continued to conduct awareness and educational programmes with the communities highlighting the importance of participating in the economic and social agenda. Over the years, the programmes have increased the communities awareness and understanding of the positive externalities from the growth which related directly with the new economic activities in the region. Without a doubt, the programmes have helped in mitigating the risk of communities being left out from the opportunities.

Village Enhancement and Empowerment Programme

Unlocking the economic potential through rallying the participation from the local communities is one of the key agenda in Iskandar Malaysia social development framework. The gap in spatial development between cities and villages should not be seen as a major hindrance for the region in achieving its development goals. IRDA has invested in various projects which includes improvements in infrastructure as well as built environment of the villages to enable and to a certain extent enhance the business activities in these areas. IRDA introduced Village Enhancement and Empowerment Programme (VEEP) to sustain the dynamism of the villages and the communities with regards to growth in development nodes in Iskandar Malaysia. VEEP covers 23 villages and its project proponents comprise Kawan Iskandar Malaysia (KIM) and Iskandar Malaysia Pusat Orang Desa (IMPOD). KIM focuses on empowering the village communities through operationalising of social enterprises, and IMPOD supports in empowering youths in rural areas.

Urban Farming

The establishment of Iskandar Malaysia Urban Farming (IMURFARM) project is to enable the bottom 40% percentile of the income group to participate in small to medium scale food, mainly vegetable production for their consumption and sale. In the long run, the project will contribute to the reduction of food expenses component from aggregate cost of living (food is one of the three largest compositions of cost of living). Indirectly, the project optimises the use of designated open spaces in the urban area. This has improved the local community sense of belonging and cohesion. Over the years, the project has evolved in diversification in crop production as well as techniques. The communities who work on the farm have experienced sales growth up to 60% on average when compared to previous years.

IM Makmur

The core component of IM Makmur lies in the skilling and up-skilling process through training for members of the society who constrained in their ability to make a livelihood such as the physically challenged, single mothers and the low-income earners. Certain targets have been set for the programme to ensure the participants receive a positive impact such as improvement in income generation. The project has reported on average the participant’s income level has increased by about 40%. The income level of the participants before participating in the programme and after was compared. The types of training comprise motor mechanic, entrepreneurship, beauty care, food preparation & handling, and maternity care.

Smart Healthy City and Community Programme

The Smart Healthy City and Community programme in Iskandar Malaysia generally comprises two elements; educating and reaching out to the people and communities in Iskandar Malaysia to embrace a healthy lifestyle, and to encourage the conducive eco-system in enhancing the quality of life through awarding of Iskandar Malaysia Smart Healthy City Township Status. The programme has garnered participation over 20,000 people annually and proves that IRDA’s initiative to propagate social connectedness in achieving cohesive society regardless of cultural, ethnicity, education level and social status is working. “

Youth Development Programmes

Youth is such an important segment of the population in the world and similarly in Iskandar Malaysia.  In Iskandar Malaysia, based on current population estimates 2019 by Department of Statistics, almost half of 48% of its population is of those aged between 16 to 40 years old (Generation Y and Z; aged 16 to 30 at 29% and Generation X; aged 30 to 40 at 19%).  Based on the demographics itself, we can say that this quantum of the population is a great asset for Iskandar Malaysia if they are harnessed and utilised in the right direction.

A strategic and holistic youth development framework for Iskandar Malaysia has been developed to explicitly states Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA)’s commitment towards placing youth at the epicentre of its development goal to transform Iskandar Malaysia to be a strong and sustainable metropolis of international standing.

IRDA has also been active since 2009 in crafting and executing many youth developments programmes to complement the national and state youth agenda in collaboration with various agencies and stakeholders which covers aspect such as infrastructure development, capacity building, mindset change, employment and entrepreneurship, and others.  Some of the key programmes are summarized below ;

Iskandar Malaysia Social Hero Award (IMSHA)

Community leaders who champion the agenda of social connectedness are given the centre stage in advocating good deeds in Iskandar Malaysia. Iskandar Malaysia acknowledges not only the leaders but also the personalities through an annual event to spot, recognize and celebrate those who are making the difference through social services. Dubbed as Iskandar Malaysia Social Hero Awards, the project is 100% run and managed by a not-for-profit entity and utilizes the social media platform for the members of the public to submit the nomination. The first event was in 2014 and the total number of nominations was 173. Cumulatively the number has reached 800 in 2019 which means it has incrementally inspired more people to take up charitable work. It was also reported that this initiative has encouraged individuals, organizations, companies to innovate in addressing new social challenges.

The award categories are disaster relief, animal and wildlife, public safety, education advancement, environment preservation/protection, health services, human empowerment, poverty and hunger relief, corporate social responsibility, social innovator, and arts, culture and heritage. A social impact rating was developed for the nominees, which are based on the social impact, frequency, visibility, sustainability, inclusiveness, ethics, and source of fund. 2019 was a special year for IMSHA since United Nation has joined the foray to benchmark IMSHA against global standard and at the same time promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Iskandar Malaysia Arts and Culture Programmes

Mobility among artists and cultural professionals has always been a prerequisite for the creation of new narratives, and to certain extend contribution to a responsible and sustainable community. To some, it has become intrinsic to their careers.  Iskandar Malaysia has introduced various initiatives under this agenda such as Iskandar Malaysia Beyond Boundaries Programme (IMB2P).  It has bridged the gap which hinders several artists and cultural professionals to engage with the wider spectrum of international partners. IMB2P has spurred participating artists’, practitioners’, and students’ mobility further through grant disbursement. The accumulated number of projects that received the grant has reached 43 and they are from the exploration & network, outbound, and inbound categories.

Efforts to improve the Public Arts as a medium to improve the sense of belonging among the local community, while improving the streetscape and liveability factor in the city is also ongoing.  Public Art Guidelines has been developed, and a pilot residency programme for local young artists to design the public art structure for Sungai Segget landscape was conducted.  The installation of these artworks that incorporates local character, historical and heritage elements will be a testament of Iskandar Malaysia’s acknowledgement of the importance of arts and culture as part of our holistic development plans.

Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (GCOM)

Following the discussion in United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Conference of the Parties (COP 23) 2017 in Bonn, Germany, Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) officially became a member of Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (GCOM). GCOM is a global coalition of city leaders dedicated to reducing their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, making communities more resilient to climate change and regularly report their progress publicly. The coalition comprises more than 10,000 cities across 6 continents and 138 countries.

CDP Cities Reporting Platform

As a member of GCOM, Iskandar Malaysia is committed to disclosing and reporting our Climate Action Plans and Goals, Climate Mitigation and Adaptation through the CDP Cities Reporting Platform. CDP uses the scoring methodology to incentivise cities to measure and manage environmental impacts. CDP is a global environmental impact non-profit, providing a platform for all companies and cities to report information on their climate, water and deforestation impacts.

By taking part in CDP, IRDA can explore publicly disclosed data from over 800 cities, benchmark Iskandar Malaysia climate action against other cities globally and learn about what climate risks other cities are facing and what actions they are taking to adapt.

Iskandar Malaysia Ecolife Challenge

The Iskandar Malaysia Ecolife Challenge (IMELC) is one of the most successful initiatives taken under the LCS program. Its objectives are: (a) to educate both students, parents and teachers on low carbon issues and ideas; and (b) to share the tools with which LCS is developing in Iskandar Malaysia.

IMELC is jointly organised by four strategic partners namely Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri Johor (JPNJ, the State of Johor Education Department), and SWM Environment Sdn. Bhd.  The IMELC 2019 was also strongly supported by the Green Technology Application for the Development of Low Carbon Cities (GTALCC).

Iskandar Malaysia Greenhouse Gas

IRDA has been tracking Iskandar Malaysia Greenhouse Gas performance for the year 2015, 2016 and 2017. Iskandar Malaysia is the first in Malaysia to use an internationally recognised standard – the Global Protocol for Community-scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventory (GPC) – to account for the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) within the IM boundary, which covers five local authorities.

Building Energy Monitoring & Reporting System (BEMRS)

BEMRS is a reporting tool for measuring building energy performance as well as to track and monitor the Green House Gases (GHG) emission through the achievement of the building energy-saving programme. The BEMRS was adopted as one of the catalytic programmes under the Green Technology Application for the Development of Low Carbon Cities (GTALCC), which is funded by the Global Environment Facility and championed by UNDP and managed for Malaysia by the Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA).  Under the GTALCC, BEMRS can be replicated to spearhead the wider adoption of the low carbon cities concept and initiatives at local authority level.

CASBEE Iskandar Project – Capacity Training Module.

The Comprehensive Assessment System of Built Environment Efficiency (CASBEE) is a tried and tested assessment tool widely adopted and used Japan, and has been customised for a tropical country like Malaysia. Iskandar Malaysia is the pioneer of CASBEE in the country. Several pilots and projects have been done over the past 5 years and have shown that this assessment tool is robust and very effective.

Green Accord Initiative Award

The prestigious Green Accord Initiative Award (GAIA) started in 2016 to encourage stakeholders’ commitment to environmental sustainability and stewardship and to increase voluntary environmental initiatives especially by private organisations in the economic region.

GAIA was designed, managed and being promoted by IRDA but the actual assessment of buildings and areas are scrutinised and decisions are made by an Independent Panel of Judges made of University professors, SEDA Malaysia, UNDP Malaysia, and industry.  When judging the entries, the judges assess the contents of each submission and then verified them during their site inspections.  Once these stages are carried out, the judges then submit their agreed results to IRDA, who then hold the GAIA event to announce the recipients.
