Malaysia is a party to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). More about the Convention on Biological Diversity.

Malaysia's Clearing House Mechanism

The primary objective of this portal is to provide a mechanism for the efficient exchange of information on biological diversity in Malaysia between involved persons and institutions. In addition, the service will facilitate international access to information on the status of biodiversity studies and biodiversity management in Malaysia.

In line with the MyCHM philosophy, the system will collate information from a variety of different sources, provide easy access to and make available for public circulation, information, databases and other relevant material, provided by the various stakeholders. We hope that you will find this portal useful and informative. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The MyCHM is arranged in accordance with the Convention's thematic and cross-cutting issues.
