Climate-Wise Development Roundtable Series 

 

Climate and Development: The Imperative for Sustainability and Resilience in Myanmar and ASEAN

with 

Professor Nay Htun

Research Professor, Stony Brook University 

Lunch will be provided.
 

The presentation will provide a review of the historical, an overview of contemporary and a preview of potential outcomes of the inextricable linkage of climate and social, economic and human development as well as some policy, technical, management and institutional response measures. It will make the case for temporal and spatial inter-connectedness as well as the need to go beyond sustainability and include resiliency. The challenge in Myanmar as well as in other ASEAN countries is the fierce urgency of how to be more sustainable and resilient in crafting development policies, strategies and actions. The opportunity for transformational institutional, capacity building, technology, economic instruments, and management response options will be discussed.

 

Nay Htun, a Chemical Engineer, is Research and Visiting Professor in a number of leading Universities in the US, Europe and Asia. He is Founder and Hon. Patron of the Green Economy Green Growth, GEGG Myanmar (not for profit) Association, and Chairman of the Board of the Peconic Institute, Long Island, N.Y. He was formerly with UNDP and UNEP where he held the rank of UN Assistant-Secretary General. He was also Director of Programme with the UNCED Secretariat that organized the 1992 Rio Earth Summit.



The Climate-wise Development Roundtable series brings Science and Technology Officers of the ASEAN member embassies in Washington, DC together with specialists from the NGO, think tank and academic communities in invitation-only, off the record sessions to discuss the ways in which ASEAN nations are innovating in the realm of climate-wise or "green growth" development strategies. Meeting on a quarterly basis, PISA facilitates and hosts these discussions with invited experts in the climate, security, energy, and development fields.
