Myanmar, EU to jointly combat climate change

Myanmar and the European Union committed to strengthening cooperation on climate change  in a workshop in Nay Pyi Taw on Monday.
At the workshop, officials from the Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry, other key line ministries and the EU, civil society representatives, the private sector participants, and other development partners discussed the draft National Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan in Myanmar.
The National Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan is supported by the Myanmar Climate Change Alliance, a flagship programme of the Government of Myanmar to increase the institutional and technical capacities to address climate change. The 4-year EU-funded programme is being jointly implemented by United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to raise the awareness around climate change and making sure government policies, plans and activities take climate change into consideration.
