The Myanmar Water CoP stimulates peer-to-peer knowledge exchange and learning between local and international water experts and empowers local ownership. It becomes a Body of Knowledge and - as a collective - will act as a Facilitator and Connector to help water experts to be part of the process.
The CoP provides a connection between existing groups and provides a key place for water issues related matters to be considered, discussed and resolved.
Key functions of the CoP are:
Sharing information on specific water management issue through expert meetings and seminars
Providing commentary and critique on key water programs in Myanmar such as flooding and river transport
Influence decision makers and identify critical gaps and opportunities
Elevate the issue of specific water challenges into a broader planning context
As the Myanmar Water CoP is driven by local ownership, it focuses on the water challenges as presented by the local experts. This offers a unique and valuable insight into the issues that really matter to people locally, who owns them, what approaches are considered, how these are prioritised, etc. International experts participate at the invitation of the local hosts.
