Climate Change Awareness Strategy

Myanmar is experiencing the impact of climate change already. Levels of understanding of how climate change will impact Myanmar is also increasing and new policies and actions are being undertaken.

However, our mandate is to ensure that every part of the society is aware of climate change implications. For this we believe five groups must be targeted (see below). Do you agree? Do you have experience and materials?

If you do have climate change awareness materials, please let us know, we can help you sharing and replicating!

Also, let us have your ideas and suggestions before 15th May, 2016 as we will be finalizing the Climate Change Awareness Strategy using your feedback.
