SMART Myanmar II

SMART Myanmar II - SMEs for environmental Accountability, Responsibility and Transparency

Despite some progress, Myanmar's garment industry still lacks awareness in the principles of sustainable consumption and production (SCP) and social responsibility. Garment companies need to comply with environmental and social standards to regain access to international markets. Thus, the social and environmental conditions, especially for workers in the sector, will need to be reviewed.

The project seeks to contribute to a switch to sustainable garment consumption patterns and promote sustainable growth of Myanmar's garment sector. Specifically the project aims at institutionalising, up-scaling and replicating successful SCP practices in the garment sector developed and implemented during the SMART Myanmar I project.

Duration: 1/2016 - 12/2019
