The speaker is Ms. Nazlinda binti Zamani, Principal Assistant Secretary, Strategic Planning Division, Ministry of Rural and Regional Development, Malaysia.


The Rural Development Policy 2030(RDP 2030) has summarised the “Prosperous, Inclusive, and Sustainable Rural Living” vision as the main agenda of the rural development approach in Malaysia by 2030. The “Prosperous Rural Living” vision reflects the Government of Malaysia’s aspiration to ensure rural communities have access to infrastructure and social amenities comparable to urban communities. Furthermore, the Government of Malaysia envisage there will be additional jobs and business opportunities in the rural areas that can increase the income and well-being of the rural communities. 

RDP 2030 was launched in 2019 and consists of 10 thrusts, 33 policy statements and 88 strategies. Each thrust is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030 to ensure that the target of SDG will be achieved through the implementation of RDP 2030. 

The Webinar will give an overview of the Malaysia Rural Development Policy 2030 as well as rural development programmes implemented by Malaysia to achieve the target set in RDP 2030 and SDG 2030.
