Burma - Culture Smart! An indispensable guide to customs and culture - Kyi Kyi May
For half a hundred years Burma, with a new democracy and civil rule, is experiencing important changes as it draws closer to its next election in 2015, concealed from the attention of the rest of the world by Burma's self-insulationism. Burma's tribe is naturally kind and courteous, traditional casual and peaceful.
They' re also great fans of entertainment, amusement and celebrations - in fact there is a party for every year. The book provides priceless insight into the inner workings of the Burmese, their histories, customs, attitudes and work ethics, and provides hands-on guidance on what to look for in different situations and how to do it.
The Pact starts to launch ENERY FOR PROsperity, a comprehensive effort to increase accessibility to renewable energies in emerging municipalities.
Today the Pact launched a new worldwide effort entitled E4P (Energy for Prosperity) to increase accessibility to low and medium incomes as part of the organization's inclusive design concept. More than 1 billion of the world's population have no direct connection to electricity. It is a great obstacle to those communities' advancement in areas ranging from basic needs and living standards to healthcare and diet.
Focusing on innovations and entrepreneurship, the Pact will help individuals to obtain accessible, cheap, reliable power that is not wasted. The Pact works with government, business, investment and other civic organisations to work towards a bright and prosperous tomorrow where all human beings have the capabilities and capabilities they need to take advantage of the many opportunities offered by today's world.
In Myanmar, Ahlin Yaung started the Ahlin Yaung Renewables Committee in 76 communities to educate local communities on the installation and maintenance of PV home installations and to administer a revolutionary funds to provide the start-up funds for the acquisition of PV home installations. Ahlin Yaung is working to supply one million inhabitants in country towns with renewables by 2021.
To date, more than 200,000 individuals in CMB have been given electrical power through Ahlin Yaung, both through the use of photovoltaic energy and through the provision of electrified local communities. Approximately half say they use the power to be more prolific, such as run shops longer and more effectively, and approximately 80 per cent say that their kids, who are now able to learn and learn after sundown, have acquired pedagogical advanta- ge.
Ahlin Yaung now also finances mini-grid and network access and aquacultural programmes to encourage the use of production and further enhance the economy. "Launching this enhanced worldwide effort is in line with the Pact's on-going transformations, in which the organisation is developing and using new ways of developing, in acknowledgement of the fact that the present patterns are not enough to address the systematic issues that sustain poverty," said Matthew Cullinen, Senior Director, Technology for Prosperity.
It does so in the shape of a range of products und utilities that eliminate distortion of and bottlenecks in the market, reduces the costs and complexities of developing and distributing power projects and creates the conditions for a new link between the two. The term Prosperity to Boost Europe's Prosperity covers both donor-funded and private-sector efforts to improve accessibility to it.
Previous renewables pact members include Chevron, Shell, Engie and ABB. Pakt is also hosting a new Smart Power Myanmar (SPM) campaign. The Pact, with funding from the Rockefeller Foundation, will speed up the process of providing Myanmar's rich and disadvantaged populations with renewables by connecting major actors in the local community, promoting local economy and changing life in the countryside.
Myanmar's Smart Plant will develop a sustainable, decentralised renewables eco-system by providing the right incentive and measures to extend the scope of production to those who do not have adequate accessibility, with a strong emphasis on customer-centred approaches, long-term socio-economic developments and systems icons. Myanmar's smart electricity plant will mobilise tens of billions of dollars to help set up tens of thousand small networks and other countryside electricity supply systems in line with Myanmar's National Electricity Plan.
