According to the United Nation Environment Programme (UNEP), Myanmar is widely considered one of the most vulnerable countries in the world in terms of the impact of climate change. More intense and frequent floods, cyclones and droughts have caused immense loss of life and damage to infrastructure and the economy, putting Myanmar’s renowned biodiversity and natural resources under increasing pressure. Compared to many other countries in the region, Myanmar is currently much less prepared to respond to the challenges of global heating.
