Climate Risk Information Needs for Decision-Making in Myanmar
Abstract
This research aims at informing development initiatives that responds to capacity gaps and requirements of stakeholder sectors in Myanmar in relation to mitigation and management of risks relevant to climate variability and change. The research concentrates on Dagon Seikan Hpa-An, Keng Tung, Kyauk Phyu, Labutta, Mawlamyine, and Meiktila; and select communities therein. These townships were prioritized considering differential hazards, risks, and capacity building requirements, with respect to various zones (i.e. coastal, central dry, and hilly areas) in Myanmar. Outputs from this research could provide a roadmap for government authorities, nongovernment organizations, and development institutions in designing, prioritizing, and implementing capacity development initiatives for improving generation, interpretation, translation and application of different lead times of information for short, medium and long term plans and decisions.
