New Yangon Development Company Ltd. (“NYDC”) proposes to develop the New Yangon City in Seikgyi Kanaungto, Twantay, Hlaing Tharyar, and Kyee Myin Daing Township, Yangon Region, Myanmar. For Stage 1 of Phase 1 of the Project, the New Yangon City is split into the following six groups based on the types of facilities: Bridges, Roads, Power, Industrial Zone, Water, and Wastewater.
Under the Environmental Conservation Law and Rules of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, NYDC is required to undertake six Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) for Bridges, Roads, Power, Industrial Zone, Water, and Wastewater in order to obtain an Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) for Stage 1 of Phase 1. NYDC will also undertake one Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) for Phase 1, to systematically analyse the impacts of plans, policies, programmes and other strategic initiatives on the environment. Environmental Resources Management (ERM) – Myanmar Limited, Resource and Environment Myanmar (REM) and Environment Quality Management (EQM), on behalf of NYDC, are currently undertaking the EIAs & SEA, which include baseline surveys and stakeholder engagement. The EIAs will be conducted in accordance with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation (MONREC)’s EIA Procedure (2015).
The scoping reports for the six project components have been submitted to the Environmental Conservation Department (ECD) of the MONREC.
