Myanmar: a New Frontier for Sustainable Development

The world has witnessed significant, exciting and sudden political changes in Myanmar over the past couple years. The country is at a critical phase in its social and economic transformation, and there is enormous opportunity for development and economic growth.

The Center on Globalization and Sustainable Development is building a sustainable development program to provide policy support for the government, local NGOs and the donor community, accelerating growth that is both socially inclusive, sustainable and mindful of climate risks and opportunities. This video explains the project.

For more on the project, visit the center’s website; and read a first-hand account of the center’s trip to Myanmar earlier this year.
