This event will be hosted as part of the Greater Mekong Forum, taking place on December 4 -6 in the Inya Lake Hotel. In this session we will highlight some of the results as well as showcase the measuring tools that were tested and demonstrated in the projects. These pilots will provide policy-makers and other stakeholders with many inspiring and useful ways to gain access to more data and a better understanding on the impact of certain decisions. This session will break the existing paradigm that data collection is expensive and time-consuming – it can also be done low-cost, reliable, high-tech hence leading to smart decision-making!

The Greater Mekong Forum on Water, Food and Energy is the largest annual knowledge-sharing event in the Greater Mekong. It presents research-based evidence to non-governmental organisations, policy-makers, the private sector, and development agencies. It does this through carefully designed and facilitated dialogues.

The 2018 Forum theme is:
Economic Development and the Rivers of the Greater Mekong: The rivers of the Greater Mekong hold great economic value in terms of their hydropower, fisheries, transport and agricultural potential. So too, these rivers are economic and ecological corridors generating immense economic growth for the countries through which they pass. But this economic growth comes with its own social, economic and environmental challenges. The 2018 Greater Mekong Forum on Water, Food and Energy will focus on ways in which these challenges can be addressed through tried-and-tested solutions, knew knowledge generated by research and through a regional, multi-sectoral, multi-stakeholder dialogue.

[Forum purpose]

The purpose of the forum is to:

To create ‘safe’ spaces for stakeholders to come together to informally discuss difficult and controversial water-related discussions.
To network and to promote cross-regional learning on water-food-energy nexus-related issues.
To encourage and facilitate building of networks across sectors and river basins to support future collaborations.
Interface research-based solutions with a non-technical public, policy-makers, and the private sector.
Provide would-be users with an opportunity to deliberate and query potential solutions.
Who attends the Forum?
The forum is designed for knowledge users: government and development agencies, the private sector and research-for-development practitioners. We emphasise deliberation and listening, query and debate.

At the 2017 Forum, we welcomed 431 participants, representing 171 institutions. 7% of our participants were Cambodian, 6% Chinese, 7% Laotian, 34% Myanmar, 7% Thai, 10% Vietnamese and 27% international. The forum attracts participants from the research community, civil society, government and the private sector.

Boasting unrivalled growth opportunities, Myanmar’s water supply & treatment industries are ripe for the taking. MYANWATER 2018 Expo – Myanmar’s No.1 International Water Supply & Treatment Exhibition is your chance to be part of the biggest marketing platform of the industry.

The MYANWATER 2018 Expo is scheduled to be held at the MEP, Mindama, Yangon from the 29th November to the 1st of December 2018. With over 1.07 million households using unimproved toilets, nearly 3.1 million households in Myanmar are in critical need of access to improved water sources.

Emerging from the depths of isolation after decades of junta rule, Myanmar is opening the doors to the outside world, driven by the escalating force of the industrial sector.

Recognised since 2013 as Myanmar’s water industry, biggest and most important international exhibition, this platform plays the medium in delivering innovative solutions to meet the country’s increasing demand for water supply, sanitation & industrial wastewater treatment requirements.

Myanmar’s gross domestic product figures for 2017 is reported at 7.7% while 8% is anticipated for 2018, as projected by the Asian Development Bank. This puts the country greatly ahead of all other countries in the Southeast Asia region in terms of economic growth. With a strong leadership under Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s political party, the nation’s population of 54 million people and a large proportion in the working class, the country has a great capacity and capability to maintain its rapid progress.

Yangon Investment Forum 2018 is organized by the Yangon Region Investment Committee (YRIC) and the Department of Investment and Company Administration (DICA), with the Myanmar Investors Development Association (MIDA) acting as the Main Sponsor, alongside GIZ, UMFCCI, PwC, RICE and Hotel Max as supporting organizations.

The theme of the Forum is “Yangon Region: Investment Hub in Myanmar” which reflects the significance of Yangon Region in terms of investment opportunities for investors, both domestic and foreign. With a population of — million, and many areas and sectors that need development, to call Yangon Region Investment Hub in Myanmar is not far from the truth. There are over 20 industrial zones and to meet the needs of its large population and incoming businesses, its infrastructure sector alone, for example, requires large investment.

The Forum is the first time ever that is held by the Regional Government and constitutes a rare opportunity for investors to learn directly from the regional authorities and the Myanmar Investment Commission how mutually beneficial for them and the Yangon Regional Government to do business together. To achieve this ultimate outcome, the Forum will have high-ranking government officials as speakers, such as the mInister for Planning and Finance and the Chief Minister of the Yangon Region Government. They will certainly lay out the future development plans for Yangon Region and all the required information that will immensely help the potential investors in deciding where to invest and lingering concerns of potential investors to do business in Myanmar, in particular in Yangon Region.

In fact, this will be an event that you will never regret having attended.

OBJECTIVES

- To provide the information on the new investment application procedure
- To provide investment opportunities in Yangon Region
- To give an opportunity to clarify question directly with line stakeholders
- To facilitate investment through transparent, clear and expeditious procedures of the Yangon Region

ORGANIZERS

The Forum is organized by Yangon Region Investment Committee in association with Myanmar Investors Development Association (MIDA) and supported by DICA, GIZ, UMFCCI and Pwc.

The United Nations (UN) Convention on the law of the Non-navigational Uses of International Watercourses (UNWC), 1997 presents an opportunity for countries sharing river basin by providing a clear legal framework. By setting rules and standards, the UNWC, 1997 can strengthen water governance, enforce globally accepted legal and institutional principles and can facilitate cooperation among different stakeholders by providing clear mechanism to build consensus and reach agreements on the governance of transboundary rivers.

The dialogue on “UNWC (1997) as a tool for cooperative transboundary water governance and sustainable basin management” will be facilitated by IUCN under the BRIDGE programme in partnership with National Water Resource Committee (NWRC) of Myanmar. The objective of the dialogue is to bring together relevant stakeholders from Myanmar working on/or having influence on water governance, to:

- review the principles and provisions of UNWC (1997) and assesses its implications for the management of the transboundary rivers in Myanmar
- discuss and identify the advantages of UNWC (1997) ratification by Myanmar.
- better define how the BRIDGE programme can support Myanmar and gather inputs for the designing of BRIDGE Mekong Phase IV (2019 – 2021).
