Environmental Issues of Mining Activities in Myanmar
- The paper analyzes the environmental impacts by the different types of mining methods which are used to extract the mineral resources in Myanmar. Behind the success of national economy by exploring its mineral resources, the local people suffer the negative impact of mine projects. The environmental legal system and associated regulations are the basic means to the prevention and after-closure of mine projects. The lack of the environmental impact assessment (EIA), international environmental conservation standards and vocational training for environmental management plan represents a very serious gap in protection for communities nearby the mine sites. This study explains how to implement the international standards and CSR commitments for the environmental issues by mining activities. As a result, the contractual relationship between the State and mine enterprises is a completely key area of focus for environmental responsibilities before the deal and throughout the mine business.
