Ayeyarwady Basin Planning Coordinator
As the first initiative under the Myanmar–Australia partnership, AWP supported the appointment of a part-time Ayeyarwady State of the Basin Assessment (SOBA) Coordinator from Australia initially for two years.
The Coordinator works directly with the Government of Myanmar to support the National Water Resources Committee (NWRC) in developing a SOBA Report that firmly links science with participatory consultation process to ensure the trajectory for the Ayeyarwady River Basin planning processes are inclusive and evidence-based.
The SOBA Report is an important part of the Ayeyarwady Integrated River Basin Management (AIRBM) Project owned by the NWRC.
