SEA and Delta strategy Myanmar: green or grey?

September 2017 - Myanmar_kleinerA workshop took place in the framework of the SEA inclusive ‘Integrated Ayeyarwady Delta Strategy’ in Myanmar. The workshop, in which the NCEA played a role, served to discuss two main strategies for further development of the Delta. The ‘grey’ strategy takes man-made infrastructure as a starting point for developing the Delta’s economic potential. The ‘green’ strategy, on the other hand, is based on adapting to the natural system. Participants showed great interest in the green strategy, which is based on the ‘room for rivers’ principles that were originally developed in The Netherlands.
