Abstract: The Selangor State Policy on Environmentally Sensitive Areas (ESAs) was officially launched on 5 June 1999. Three types of ESAs are identified. These are ESAs for Heritage Value, ESAs for Life Support Systems and ESAs associated with Hazards. The paper aims to highlight the importance of geoscience in land use planning, particularly through the Selangor Policy on ESAs. The issues and challenges in contributing effectively to ensure environmental sustainability are discussed in this context.
