Showcasing Smart Information Solutions in the Ayeyarwady Delta at Greater Mekong Forum 2018


In countries like Myanmar a decent system for data collection and monitoring is often missing. But having access to sufficient and accurate data is essential for making fact-based decisions, predictions and policy-making. However, this scarcity can be turned into an advantage: by skipping less efficient and more expensive older technologies, the road is free for more advanced and cost-effective solutions!

To stimulate innovation VP Delta started the project "Leapfrogging Delta Management in Myanmar". Together with universities, ministries and water partners in Myanmar they gave the floor to several Dutch innovative start-ups and SME's to test and demonstrate their innovative monitoring tools for data collection in Myanmar. In all thematic areas smart ways of collecting, analysing and using data are combined. Take a look at the innovations in the fields of rainfall, river, coastal, water quality and soil/subsidence.

VP Delta has bundled all smart solutions presented by the different start-ups and SME's in a nice overview booklet.
