Myanmar is one of the most affected countries in the world by the negative effects of climate change. Events such as Cyclone Nargis, which killed more than 130,000 people, heatwaves in 2010, large floods in 2015 have disastrous impact on lives and economy of the country. Climate change increase the intensity and likelihood of these events. But there is also an invisible, treacherous side to climate change, which is transforming society. Sea-level is rising, salinizing water sources and farmlands; increased temperatures are affecting agriculture, pushing many to migrate. From the Delta area to to the mountains in the North, climate change threatens the way of life of Myanmar, and its development.
But there are ways to adapt: through research, smart investment, planning, new agriculture and engineering, awareness. Myanmar’s people can live and even thrive in the age of warmer days.
