Burma will host its second forum on sustainable economic growth from Nov. 13-15 in Naypyidaw, according to a report by China’s Xinhua news agency. Delegates, including around 80 foreign and 20 domestic environmental experts, will discuss 18 topics from energy, water and food security to forestry and responsible tourism. Burma hosted its first Green Economy and Green Growth Forum last November. The event was organized by Dr Nay Tun, a US-based academic who formerly held the rank of UN assistant secretary general at the UN Development Program and the UN Environment Program.
