Democracy, Civil Society, & Team Building in Penang: Key Organizations and Agencies

Penang civil society public meeting on PTMP - anil Netto.PNG

Civil Society is the life raft of 21st century democracy

The following listing of twenty-plus organizations is intended eventually to be extended to identify all those groups and institutions who are going to have a role in the restructuring of Penang’s mobility arrangements. (Note: Each of these entries is clickable and will take you directly to the indicated source.)

But here’s our question. Are there other groups, programs and agencies (and companies and media) who should be identified here for communication and coordination purposes in support of the project?  For example, are there units or projects at the level of local government which are aimed at specific near term problems or issues

And should you have a contact name and email address at hand, that would be much appreciated. If so please let us know via the email address Thank you.
