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.
  • The movement of saline water into groundwater (aquifers) and Greater Yangon Part 2 , originally written by U Myint Thein.
  • Governing the Ayeyarwadyis, originally written by Joern Kristensen CEO of Myamar Institute for Integrated Development (MIID).
