President announces National Environment Policy

President U Win Myint announced National Environment Policy on 5th June 2019 along with Myanmar Climate Change Policy at an event marking World Environment Day.

The policies aim to combat the increasing threat of extreme weather and other climate change impacts to the country’s economic and social development and to transform Myanmar into a climate-resilient, low-carbon society that is sustainable, prosperous and inclusive.

They will also allow the Government to integrate the environment across all its development planning, particularly in harmony with the recently adopted Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan 2018-2030.
