Global communities need to work together to fight global warming

The people of Myanmar have been struggling to adapt to a warmer climate that is largely due to global warming. Currently, climate change is winning and the people of Myanmar are losing.
The consequences of climate change are unavoidable. However, we can carry out preventive measures and improve preparedness to reduce the impact of natural disasters. It is necessary not only to build infrastructure but also to conserve natural resources such as mangrove forests, coastal forests and coral reefs.
The destructive results of climate change demand that Myanmar invest heavily in dealing with it to be able to adapt to these changes as the country’s people continue to experience adverse effects, which are getting worse and worse every year.
Experts have warned that warmer ocean temperatures could also increase the destructive potential of cyclones and storm surges, to which the country’s coastal areas are already prone.
The Myanmar coastal region is 2,832 kilometers long, abounding with important natural ecosystems in the environs of Indian Ocean. The country’s ecosystems in the coastal regions include mangrove forests, coral reefs and marine grass, which support marine life and the environment.
If we do nothing, the natural resources of the coastal area in Myanmar will continue to deteriorate. Systematic management of the coastal areas will be helpful to the development of marine life as well as the socio-economic life of the people and protection from natural disasters.
During the past decades, mangrove forests, coral reefs and marine grasslands have been destroyed, according to the study. With large investments, the extensive natural resources in Myanmar can be carefully managed and maintained so that future generations can enjoy their benefits.
But the country has very limited capacity in terms of human resources, institutions, finance and technology.
To fight climate change, the global community is urged to cooperate with Myanmar in tackling these challenges.
