OUR POLLUTED PLANET
Pollution is destroying our planet.
It is everywhere; in our rivers, oceans, land and air.
"Plastic is suffocating our earth. It has become one of the greatest environmental issues of our time."
"Myanmar desperately needs more electricity.
The question is how will we get it?"
As well as hydropower, fossil fuels like coal, gas and oil are being used to meet the energy deficit. These fossil fuels are bad news for people and nature. They are dangerous to harvest, cause deforestation, and pollute our air and water.
“A boom in industry has lead to a spike in air and water pollution."
Everyone has a role to play in solving this problem. Together, we can protect our planet from pollution.
"Myanmar has just become one of the latest countries to join the global fight against plastic."
"A few small villages across rural Myanmar are proving that Myanmar's future can be sustainably electrified."
"Sustainable practices in Myanmar’s growing industries will aid and protect the country’s development journey.”

'We need to talk about electricity'
On a dark night a young man stares at the pale glow of a light bulb and sighs. "Should I cook the rice now using firewood, or wait for the electricity," he ponders aloud. His name is Aung Kyaw Soe, one of WWF-Myanmar’s energy officers who works from our field office in Dawei. On this occasion, Aung is visiting family in a village named Sinn Inn.
