Water treatment in Myanmar’s cities: urgent actions are needed

For its second meeting, held on Friday 19th of September at Shan Yoe Yar Restaurant (Yangon), the Committee on Sustainable cities “dived” into the issue of water treatment in urban areas, and also focused, during the afternoon, on Air pollution control.

High civil servants from Yangon City Development Committee and from MOECAF presented to participants what is done, and what is expected to be… Green Lotus team also contributed by presenting the “water” section of JICA’s Masterplan of Yangon, which is meant to orientate future decisions in this field.

Urgency seems to be the key word, as Yangon population is growing very fast, with living standards improving, consumption of water will grow continuously, and its drainage is a real challenge.
