Life in Myanmar is changing dramatically. After decades of military rule, the country is gradually opening up to the world and becoming a democracy.

We opened our Yangon office in 2016 to unlock people's potential with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. Without all three, people can’t live dignified, healthy lives. With all three, they can break free from poverty and change their lives for good. 

Across the country, two in three people have clean water and decent toilets. But in many rural communities, where most people live, these figures are among the worst in Asia.

A lack of sustainable public infrastructure and resources has hampered efforts to reach people with these essentials. We will help the Government invest in these areas and ensure strong plans and systems are in place from the start.

WWF is the world’s leading independent conservation organization. WWF has many offices around the world and WWF Myanmar is one of the extensions of WWF-Greater Mekong. The hope of WWF Myanmar is that decision makers across the country will use the assessments to promote a green economy approach—one in in which the sustainable use of natural capital is integrated into the country’s new plans and policies for the economy, energy, agriculture, land use, foreign investment and more. A project led by the Myanmar government with support from WWF is already underway to compare how natural capital values change under different development scenarios.
