Burmese Articles

We introduced Burmese articles. There are two reasons why we are doing this.

  • It's more convenient for our readers to understand water-related projects.
  • To provide knowledge sharing from different sources, websites, blogs, brochures, and newspapers, etc - to make it accessible in Burmese.
We shared two Burmese articles.
  • Fighting floods with 'Sponge Cities' - an article from Water, Land and Ecosystem (WLE) website - translated by Khaing Su Lwin.
  • The movement of saline water into groundwater (aquifers) and Greater Yangon , originally written by U Myint Thein. 
  • Nature is teaching ....... are we learning? - an article from International Water Association (IWA) - translated by Yin Mon Aung
