Title: Building resilient, inclusive, and sustainable cities and towns in Myanmar - Policy Guidance Brief 4
Date of publication: October 2017
Description/subject: "By 2030, the number of people living in towns and cities in Myanmar could reach 20.4 million compared to 14.9 million in 2014. This continuous urban population growth will influence Myanmar’s development under the challenges of climate change in future..." Expanding cities and towns will emit more greenhouse gases in future due to construction growth and increasing demand for energy and services. Climate change is expected to have significant negative impacts on urban centres in Myanmar, including impact on urban infrastructure and services, increased rural-urban migration, enormous socio-economic costs, and health implications. Unless addressed, these impacts will impede the country’s development.
