The Training of Trainers on Integrated Urban River Basin Management was successfully completed on 24 April 2019 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This 2-day event took a field-based approach to training. On the first day it brought 30 participants and facilitators on a site visit with five observation stops along the Batu River.
The field study began at Batu Dam, the upstream of Batu River. As the group journeyed downstream, participants saw how the urbanisation of the Sg Batu Basin has transferred this river basin to an urban basin as it is today. This has happened through commercial, residential, industrial and recreational development, and through the development of services, amenities and infrastructure.
