Overview of M-CAN

Myanmar Climate Action Network (M-CAN) was launched in 2023 under Myanmar Climate Change Alliance (MCCA) Programme, implemented by UN-Habitat and funded by the European Union. M-CAN is currently a network of over 100 non-state climate actors in Myanmar who have voluntarily committed to promoting climate action by moving beyond climate discourse. With a focus on enhanced means of implementation, M-CAN aims to catalyze strategic partnerships and advocate for local climate action, in particular for the most vulnerable communities.

A collaborative cross-cutting and cross-sectoral approach is being used to address the multifaceted vulnerabilities related to climate change adaptation. This approach aims to integrate various stakeholders, such as NGOs, the private sector, and community organizations, to enhance awareness, dialogue, and local resilience. The development of M-CAN addresses the gaps in the current climate change sector which are data limitation, resource issues, and limited capacity, aiming to prioritize climate action towards sustainable and resilient development.
