Myanmar

Myanmar, home to 54 million people and one of the AWP’s strategic priority countries, is facing many water challenges related to extreme weather events, water quality and sanitation, and institutional capacity.

Myanmar’s water reform journey bears many similarities with the reform journey Australia has taken forward over recent decades, especially in the Murray-Darling Basin. Our experience in integrating water management and identifying the critical issues; building scientific bases and mechanisms to inform a river basin planning process; and building intersectoral institutions to effect policy mandates are all highly relevant to the Myanmar context. Australia’s water reform legacy presents an opportunity to assist Myanmar in progressing the management of its water resources in sustainable and inclusive ways.
