Project context, objectives and description
Since 2011, Myanmar has engaged in a process of institutional and political reform leading to democratization and is gearing towards rapid socio-economic change and development. Myanmar’s INDC (2015) confirmed its commitment to climate change mitigation, by pursuing a balance between socio-economic development and environmental sustainability objectives. The country will require support from the international community for capacity building and financial resources to implement the INDC actions. Myanmar recognizes a number of important themes for addressing both future emission reductions and adaptation to climate impacts, including the need for sustainable urban development and socially inclusive investments. The number of people living in urban areas will increase to 34.7% by 2030, and 50% by 2040 (MoNREC, 2017).
The project objective is to support subnational climate change action through development of investment plans for two national priority cities and two secondary cities (to be identified), including policy assessment, stakeholder engagement and assessment of best practices in the ASEAN region. To facilitate implementation of inter-sectoral investment plans and improve Myanmar’s access to climate finance, the project will raise awareness of the private sector and facilitate nomination of national potential direct access entities. This project is aligned with IO1. Strengthened national, sub-national and local green growth planning, financing and institutional frameworks and IO3. Improved multi-directional knowledge sharing and learning to empower local and external agents necessary to drive green growth processes in partner governments.
