About the Project
The Governance for Resilience and Sustainability Project (GRSP) will assist Myanmar to implement recent policy reforms related to environmental governance, climate change and disaster risk reduction (DRR), to ensure that economic growth in Myanmar is more inclusive, resilient and sustainable. Environmental degradation, when combined with natural disasters and effects of climate change, undermines the attainment of inclusive and sustainable growth. UNDP recognizes that Myanmar’s environmental assets present unique opportunities for green economic development, which can directly support women’s economic empowerment and community resilience.
With this project, UNDP supports the Government of Myanmar to mainstream environment, climate change and DRR considerations into development and project planning for key sectors and in key States and Regions. It supports counterparts to implement new policies, including through strengthened financing and comprehensive organizational and human resources development planning. The project aims to promote and mobilize green investments in environmental goods and services to protect natural resources, improve waste management and to create sustainable wealth and employment.
GRSP is also UNDP Myanmar’s innovative umbrella project for building technical linkages between environment, climate and DRR related activities. The new phase of the Inle Lake conservation project is implemented through GRSP.
