Under the National Economic Recovery Plan (PENJANA), Malaysia’s government has allocated RM10 million for Urban Agriculture Project to enable people, who don’t have agricultural land, to participate by using technology, as well as recycling materials, to produce food.

Malaysia’s Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Food Industries Datuk Che Abdullah Mat Nawi said the project would help households lower their cost of living by producing their own foodstuffs with the Agriculture Department’s guidance.

The National Economic Recovery Plan (PENJANA) is an initiative to restore the country’s sagging economy in order to deal with the economic fallout during the COVID-19 pandemic.
