The five-day training programme, held in Myanmar’s capital, Nay Pyi Taw, on 18–22 Feb 2013 was aimed at, among others, gaining a better understanding of climate change’s anticipated impacts on Myanmar, and to learn and examine cooperative approaches from the local to the regional level that can inform climate change policies. The training programme brought together about 30 selected officials representing different ministries in Myanmar. Prof. Caballero-Anthony lectured on ASEAN, Climate Change and Human Security.
