Myanmar: Environmental, Political and Social Issues presents educational, historical and social contexts in Myanmar strongly suggesting that, after decades of educational neglect, the time has come for educational reform in schools. The world’s most significant learning environment questionnaire (What Is Happening In this Class?) is used to address how practitioners can facilitate improvements in classrooms in Myanmar, as well as how educational researchers in Myanmar can replicate past research in other countries.
Next, the authors examine the current state of environmental and natural resources governance in Myanmar for addressing priority needs, challenges and opportunities, and identifies possible areas of improvement. Current environmental laws, natural resources policy measures, and natural resource governance frameworks are analyzed, and policy recommendations are put forward.
The closing review highlights an approach for sustainable waste management in Myanmar taking into account the successful waste management practices in other Asian countries. Additionally, the authors specify the current practices, issues and challenges of waste management systems in Myanmar.
