Myanmar pro-democracy crusader Daw Aung San SuuKyi on Thursday underscored the need to protect natural resources from the adverse impacts of urbanisation during her maiden visit to The Energy and Resources Institute’s (TERI) campus here today.

Suu Kyi, an internationally acclaimed icon for spearheading a widely-popular years-long struggle against military dictatorship in Myanmar, has also been a vocal advocate on environmental issues in public life, and endorses environmental conservation and the adoption of sustainable models of development.

Noting TERI’s pathbreaking contributions in this realm, SuuKyi-accompanied by Director General, TERI, Dr. R.K. Pachauri-visited various research facilities and eco-friendly installations developed by the Institute across the campus. This included the RETREAT (Resource Efficient TERI Retreat for Environmental Awareness and Training) complex-an innovative structure that relies purely on efficient construction design and integrated use of renewable energy to conserve power-and the Micropropagation Technology Park.

Suu Kyi calls on India to ‘Stand by Burma’

Aung San Suu Kyi addressed the unease that has prevailed during her trip to India about the country’s support for the Burmese military junta during her period of house arrest, but reserved most of her 35-minute speech in Delhi for praising Indian leaders Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi.

“The two words I have heard most often [since I arrived in India two days ago] have been ‘expectations’ and ‘disappointment,’” Suu Kyi said.

“I was saddened to feel that we had drawn away from India, or rather that India had drawn away from us during our very difficult days. But I always had faith in the lasting friendship between our two countries based on lasting friendship between our two peoples,” she said.
