Green Initiative in Myanmar: Green Economy Green Growth (GEGG) Myanmar and Forums

Raising awareness of, and working on environmental and climate concerns is a collective effort in the ethnically diverse country. One leader on that front is a not-for-profit organization known as the Green Economy Green Growth Association (GEGG), which promotes knowledge exchange between groups within Myanmar, as well as with experts and interested parties from the international community. A primary goal of the GEGG program is to find a balance between the needs of humanity and nature, while helping business find a sustainable path forward. As Myanmar’s former President U Thein Sein noted, “We don’t want to have foreign or any investment in this country that will be damaging to the natural environment.”
