Myanmar Valuing Water

A joint initiative by the British Chamber of Commerce Myanmar and The Water Agency, the Myanmar Valuing Water Program aims to bring together public and private sector leadership to have a dialogue on the value of water in Myanmar. The program recognizes that water – too much, too little, too polluted - is increasingly becoming a strategic factor for companies in Myanmar in running and growing their businesses.

Value of Water for Business

Myanmar's transformation presents both opportunities and challenges for water management. Although Myanmar has abundant water resources at the national scale, increasing local variability of supply lies behind much of the prevailing poverty and food insecurity. Droughts, floods and pollution increasingly affect livelihoods and economic progress.

Local and international water experts are addressing these issues in Myanmar every day. However, at the core of this challenge, is the critical issue of how Myanmar and its people choose to value water and how that drives policies, business practices and behavior.

As all businesses depend on and impact water in some way and pressures on water in Myanmar increase and business continuity is challenged, it is critical for companies to understand what their business case for water is.

During this talk The Water Agency will introduce "water" in the Myanmar context – its challenges and opportunities – and invite you to discuss what this means for companies in Myanmar: how it affects you and how you respond to it. Based on this, we will explore how we can develop an agenda of activities in 2020 that will help you to develop your own business case for water in Myanmar and how we can give the private sector a stronger voice in the national water agenda.

Date: Thursday 16th January

Time: 8:30am until 10.30am
