ENVforum Workshop on Sustainable Development Goals in Myanmar

Project Updates


5 May 2015

Growth in the Cambodia – Lao PDR – Myanmar – Viet Nam (CLMV) region is projected to be rapid over the next few years. It is important to take note of this growth in the context of the global movement to frame the post-2015 development agenda through the adoption of a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In this regard, ASEF in cooperation with the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) organised a workshop on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): National Implementation Challenges on 26-27 May 2015 in Naypyidaw, Myanmar.

This workshop was aimed at environment officials and negotiators of the CLMV region concerning the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda. It focused on negotiation and implementation strategies with regard to SDGs, specifically took stock of on-going negotiations on SDGs, explored funding and governance strategies for SDGs’ implementation, and examined sustainable dimensions of poverty eradication and climate change.

The content of the training was based on the expertise of participants, as well as the findings of the ENVforum’s research series, Sustainable Development Goals for a Small Planet. This 3-part research series proposes a set of SDGs and framework methodology (Part I: Methodology & Goal Framework), indicators to measure progress in achieving the SDGs (Part II: Measuring Sustainability), and means of SDGs’ implementation (Part III: Means of Implementation – forthcoming).
