The first phase of Kelana Jaya Lakes Rehabilitation Programme begun officially in the year of 2002 and was funded by UNDP- GEF. The project was led by Global Environment Centre (GEC) to assist local authorities in the rehabilitation of the lakes and to promote collaboration with the local communities (Local Agenda 21) living around the park and in the catchment.  

The major aims of this project were to reduce the level of pollution flowing into the lakes and to increase community awareness. Therefore, a few activities has been conducted and accomplished by all stakeholders.

The biggest accomplishment of this project is the establishment of Friends of Kelana Jaya Park (FoKJP) in 2005 to develop plans and strategies for rehabilitation of the lakes.

FoKJP works alongside MBPJ and GEC to increase community’s awareness on the importance of rehabilitating biodiversity of the lake and the linkage of their household activities and pollution of the lakes and subsequently mobilise them to minimise and eventually stop this pollution source from entering the lake system. In addition, the community is being informed of the importance of re establishing a more natural ecosystem which can provide better habitats for wildlife.
