National Environmental Policy of Myanmar
The new National Environmental Policy provides long-term, strategic guidance for achieving a sustainable future for Myanmar. It requires the mainstreaming of environmental protection into planning and decision-making at all levels of government and in all sectors. Its detailed principles respect livelihood needs and development objectives while at the same time recognizing the full value of Myanmar’s ecosystems and the implications of climate change. This Policy ensures that environmental protection continues to be a central objective in Myanmar’s sustainable development pathway.
