Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said Wednesday that his country intends to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 45 percent by 2030.

"Malaysia intends to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions intensity of GDP by 45 percent by 2030 relative to the emissions intensity of GDP in 2005." Najib said on his blog post.

"This consists of 35 percent on an unconditional basis and a further 10 percent is condition upon receipt of climate finance, technology transfer and capacity building from developed countries, he added.

World leaders gathered in Paris earlier this week to outline plans to cut greenhouse gas emissions in a bid to contain global warming.

"Together with 181 countries, we have submitted the Intended Nationally Determined Contribution for the UN Climate Change Conference, currently ongoing in Paris, reaffirming our stand and commitment in fighting climate change," Najib said.

He stressed that Malaysians are not spared from global warming as the country is experiencing prolonged drought seasons and rainy seasons, suffering from water supply crises in some states as well as one of the worst floods the country has seen in decades.
