We co-hosted the first Myanmar National Energy Conference (MNEC) in Yangon, Myanmar. This was the first energy conference to exclusively bring together civil society representatives from each state and region working on energy issues to discuss the current situation of national energy planning in Myanmar. Myanmar is currently the third most vulnerable country to the effects of climate change. This conference was a successful first step toward providing a platform for communities to raise their voices to be included in the national energy planning for the country. ERI’s former Myanmar Campaign Coordinator speaks on the panel.
