Strict sewage and waste discharge standards will be enforced to protect Myanmar environment. A policy of Recycle, Reuse and Replace will be adopted throughout all aspects of the construction and operations.
Mangrove Plantation in 2023
On September 3, 2023, Mangrove Plantation, one of the livelihoods programs under the Kyaukphyu Anargat, was launched in Kyaukphyu. The program plans to have around 120,000 trees planted in the area with a degraded mangrove coverage. Mangroves can mitigate strong waves and protect costal residents amid flood. Hopefully the program may enhance the living environment of the residents along the shores.
