14 Dec Paris Agreement Myanmar
2020 Human Development Report, which focuses on achieving the goals of man in balance with the planet for Myanmar, the link between livelihoods and forest protection is the key to achieving net zero deforestation by 2030. This was one of the most important messages of… Climate commitments under the Paris Agreement cover only one-third of the emissions reductions needed to keep the world below 2 degrees Celsius. IIED has been invited by the Government of Myanmar to provide technical assistance in the development of this new policy. This followed IIED`s previous work with the Government of Myanmar to develop a national climate change strategy and national action plan. Courageous measures to combat climate change could generate at least $26 trillion in economic benefits by 2030. As of 2017, it is estimated that people have caused about 1.0oC of global warming above pre-industrial levels. Department of Environmental Protection, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Republic of the Union of Myanmar Building on this initial work, IIED conducted extensive consultations with government officials, civil society and development partners between December 2016 and May 2017. Sea level has risen by about 20 cm since 1880 and is expected to rise another 30 to 122 cm (1 to 4 feet) by 2100.
Assistance to vulnerable regions will contribute not only directly to Goal 13, but also to other SDGs. These measures must also be implemented in national development strategies to integrate disaster risk measures, sustainable natural resource management and human security. It is still possible, with strong political will, increased investment and the use of existing technologies, to limit the increase in the average global temperature to two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, which are aimed at 1.5oC, but this requires urgent and ambitious collective action. To limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, net global CO2 emissions must decrease by 45% between 2010 and 2030 and reach net zero by 2050. There is no country that does not know the dramatic effects of climate change. Greenhouse gas emissions are more than 50% higher than in 1990. Global warming is causing long-term changes in our climate system, which could have irreversible consequences if we do not act. Ooredoo Myanmar and UNDP Myanmar, hosts of Hackathon 2019 The end result – Myanmar`s national climate change policy – offers a long-term vision of equitable socio-economic development and a strategic direction for climate change measures, which recognizes Myanmar`s commitment to take ambitious steps in the implementation of the Paris Agreement. As the international community strives to meet its responsibilities under the Paris Climate Change Agreement, many least developed countries (LDCs) are trying to put in place national climate change policies that set out their long-term vision and provide a coherent response to climate change at all levels and sectors.
