This brochure is intended to serve as resource for NGOs and CSO representatives in your work to raise awareness among communities in Karen and Mon States about the current energy situation in Myanmar, and the effects the government’s proposed plans have on the land, health and human rights of the communities. Information in this brochure will hopefully provide communities with knowledge and awareness of the different existing options to access electricity and should be considered a complement to larger campaigns against harmful development projects, such as mega hydropower dams, special economic zones, and gas- and coal fired power plants. The brochure gives a brief overview of alternative energy forms. It is not intended to provide the reader with a detailed description of how these alternative energy forms function or how they can be installed.
