The goal is to transform the University of Yangon as the one of the excellent academic institution, where people can learn world class education. The goal will bring beneficial for the future generation and national interest of the state. It is a long and delicate process. During the process, financial, technical and human resources will be essential to realize the goal.


The resources can be realized through voluntary contribution, international cooperation and donation. The most important source is its greatest asset- alumni .It is believed that old graduates of the University of Yangon are willing to see the golden image of their university again and want to be proud of its bright future. It is true that they are the most powerful resource of necessary contribution for renovating and upgrading University of Yangon.

Sino-Myanmar joint venture is called the Upstream Ayeyawady Confluence Basin Hydropower Co., Ltd., or ‘ACHC’ for short. Registered as a company in Nay Pyi Taw in 2010 in order to being together government and private sector expertise so that could share technical know-how, access to investment, breadth of experience and commitment to socially responsible development.
Not only harvesting the best from the fusion of government and private enterprise, enhancing cross-border cooperation between neighbours is created.These realities are reflected in ownership structure. Myanmar’s Ministry of Electric Power (MOEP) owns 15% of ACHC and one of Myanmar’s largest business groups, Asia World Company (AWC), owns 5%. CPI Yunnan International Power Investment Company Ltd has the remaining 80% shareholding. This combination allows ACHC to create valuable, long-term assets that, after fifty years of operation, will become 100% Myanmar-owned.

Due to the need for more smart data measurements and analyses to be able to adequately choose the most sustainable solutions for water and resource management, Ministry of Transport and Communication (MOTC), Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation (MOALI) and Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation (MONREC) are working together with TU Delft and the partners of VPdelta to jointly develop smart ways to collect these data. The project called “Leapfrogging Delta Management in Myanmar” was initiated by TU Delft, FutureWater and HKV Consultants, and funded under the Partners for Water program by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).


In response to the request of the NWRC in Myanmar and the interest of Dutch innovative enterprises, the project’s main aim is to extend the current work in the Bago-Sittaung to the whole Ayeyarwady Delta in accordance with the agreement between the Myanmar and Dutch governments. The aim is to test and demonstrate innovative smart information solutions in the Delta and disseminate the results widely. Coalitions are created around specific information products (e.g. rainfall, erosion, subsidence). In each coalition, partners work on innovative monitoring: to combine remote sensing, ground data collection with modelling techniques.


The results of the project will be presented in an online platform to disseminate the products and services to a local and international audience. Throughout the entire project Dutch and Myanmar experts and young professionals will work together (learning-by-doing) and dissemination and training will be organized.


The collaborators of the project are: Myanmar National Water Resources Committee (NWRC), MOTC, DWIR, MOALI, MONREC, Irrigation Technology Center (Bago), Yangon Technological University, Myanmar Maritime University, VPdelta, TU Delft, Disdrometrics, FutureWater, Akvo, SHORE Monitoring & Research, Mobile Water Management, HKV Lijn in Water, SkyGeo, Wavedroid, VanderSat.

Water in the city is mainly focused on infrastructure development, urban design and transportation framework which include as a major factor in developing Yangon. Moreover, urbanization become more and more complex and manifold, these four main topics are particularly spotlights of water-related development: 

River Transport

As the chaotic traffic in the city worsens every day and commuters are forced to waste valuable time in transit, Yangon is calling for “River Transport” which could save time and also can lead to lower air pollution. To help reduce transportation time and traffic jams, it is critical for authorities to make better use of the city’s waterways. Navigation channels are needed to be upgraded not only for transporting commuters but also for transporting goods. If the waterways can take more container transport, this could help alleviate traffic in downtown Yangon, where heavy trucks ship containers in and out of the city throughout the day.

Flood

Heavy monsoon rain causes serious flooding in Yangon every rainy season. People in Yangon also suffer floods caused by the inadequate drainage system. Floods caused by heavy rains block the road networks, resulting in the traffic jams. People have to use main roads as there are no platforms to walk. Roads in Yangon are also in need of maintenance. The height of roads in Yangon grows higher due to the resurfacing of damaged roads. Water flows into the houses when there are heavy rains. The government needs to effectively deal with this problem by laying down a master plan to use a large sum of money on the drainage system and roads and bridges.

City Design

Yangon is suffering flooding every monsoon due to climate change and increased urban development. It is essential to design Yangon as a flood-proof city and give space for water to live in. As there are some unused and empty spaces in Yangon, they can be revitalized as rainwater reservoirs and even as water parks which serve as recreation spot. Construction of rooftop gardens and permeable roads that store runoff will also reduce the amount of rainwater runoff. But the vision of flood-resilient Yangon can only be achieved when there is coordination among stakeholders, governments, and citizens.

Ecosystem Services

Current projections of rapid expansion of urban areas present fundamental challenges to design more livable, healthy and resilient Yangon. Integrating ecosystem services including green spaces such as parks, urban forests, vacant lots, gardens and blue spaces like streams, lakes, ponds, artificial swales, and storm water retention ponds into urban development would be a ‘no-regret’ investment for Yangon. The cooling effect of trees from urban parks may contribute significantly to reduce the rising temperatures of the city in summer. And also the ponds and reservoirs will collect rainwater and prevent flooding during the time of heavy rains.

WSA was formed at the height of Australia’s Millennium Drought when water risk and responsible water management became a key focus for businesses and the community. Organisations and individuals familiar with programs such as the Forest Stewardship Council were looking for a mechanism to recognise superior water stewardship and provide a multi-stakeholder endorsed framework for assessing water performance. WSA was launched by the (then) Chair and CEO of the National Water Commission (NWC), Ken Matthews.

In 2009, WSA published the world’s first water stewardship standard with support from the MDBA. Then understanding the need for a globally-consistent approach to water stewardship WSA, in collaboration with The Nature Conservancy and The Pacific Institute, led the development of the global umbrella for water stewardship, the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS), which WSA continues to Chair. The first and current version of the AWS International Water Stewardship Standard (AWS Standard) was launched in April 2014.

WSA has established a solid governance framework with a strong Board. As a regional partner, WSA plays a key role in the governance of AWS at an international level. As we continue to build water stewardship in our region, the contribution of members is vital as it provides the support for a strong multi-stakeholder governance mechanism that will protect and enhance the integrity and credibility of our system.

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.
