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.

Handwashing with clean water is a critical line of defense against COVID-19 infection, underlining how important it is to ensure water for all. However water does not come from a tap: we must protect and restore healthy rivers.
