The National Water Resources Committee (NWRC) and Advisory Group (AG) are working on the long-term plan of producing the competent young water professional through Hydro-Informatics Centre (HIC) supported by the AG. The Young Water Professional (YWP) program is a eleven month long program, in which young graduates of Myanmar who have ambition to become water professionals and government staff from various water related Ministries receive well defined technical and on job training through the Ayeyarwady Integrated River Basin Management (AIRBM) Project. They receive mentoring, coaching and training in various technical, social, economic, political and decision making aspects of water projects. YWP trainees are recruited across Myanmar and their trainings include lectures, seminars and field trips locally and abroad. Trainers include internationally well-known water professionals from all over the world and from Myanmar.
