"The Project for Capacity Development in Basic Water Environmental Management and EIA System in Myanmar", will be implemented by Environmental Conservation Department (ECD), Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) and Mandalay City Development Committee (MCDC) in cooperation with Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The project activities in Myanmar started in June 2015, and will last until May 2018.

The purposes of the Project are to obtain enough capacity for developing basic water pollution control measures based on the acquired and analyzed information, and to establish institutional framework of the EIA review. Five (5) Japanese Experts will be dispatched to ECD to work in close cooperation with its staff both in office and on site. The team of Experts will also work closely with the officials of Pollution Control and Cleansing Department and Water and Sanitation Department of YCDC and Water Supply and Sanitation Department of MCDC.

The project activities are divided into two components: namely (i) the water environment management component and (ii) the EIA component. Among the six outputs of the project, the water environment management component covers standardization of environmental inspection (Output 1), water quality survey (Output 2), development of databases of pollution sources and river water quality (Output 3), and interpretation of information for water pollution control measures (Output 4).

Activities of the water environment management component of the project are being implemented in three cities in Myanmar, namely Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw. The water quality component has two target areas, Hlaing River basin in Yangon and Doke Hta Waddy River basin in Mandalay. These areas were selected to investigate the impact of industrial effluent from industrial zones on water quality of rivers.

The Project:

In February 2016 the Myanmar’s cabinet approved a plan for a suspended bridge which will link Yangon, the country’s main economic center, with the underdeveloped Dala Township. Due to the increasing housing demand combined with the growing land price in Yangon, a rapid urbanization is expected to take place in Dala after the construction of the bridge.

Our mission is to lay the foundation for an innovative approach for a sustainable urban development of Dala which can be set as an example for other analogous cases around the world. In September and October we will be working on this project on site in Yangon.

In collaboration with the local university and professionals, we will explore a series of designs and institutional solutions for a sustainable integration of the following aspects:

- Water urban infrastructures
- Transport system
- Institutional measures

Following Cyclone Nargis, a large number of national and international NGOs established the Local Resource Centre (LRC) to assist local communities and civil society groups in the collective effort for relief and rehabilitation. 
The Burnet Institute led the establishment of LRC in collaboration with a broad partnership of organizations, including World Concern, the HIV/AIDS Alliance, the Capacity Building Initiative (CBI) and Oxfam.  LRC was launched on May 15, 2008 to enable better coordination between local and international implementers, advocate on behalf of local groups, ensure access to capacity development services and ultimately strengthen the collaborative response to Cyclone Nargis between local and international organizations. Following the Nargis phase of operation (May 2008 – September 2010), LRC shifted its focus from disaster response to the holistic development of indigenous CSOs. LRC officially registered as a local NGO in May 2012.

Since 1985, International Rivers has been at the heart of the global struggle to protect rivers and the rights of communities that depend on them.

We work with an international network of dam-affected people, grassroots organizations, environmentalists, human rights advocates and others who are committed to stopping destructive river projects and promoting better options.

We seek a world where healthy rivers and the rights of local communities are valued and protected. We envision a world where water and energy needs are met without degrading nature or increasing poverty, and where people have the right to participate in decisions that affect their lives.

Based in four continents, our staff has expertise in big dams, energy and water policy, climate change, and international financial institutions. We support partner organizations and dam-affected people by providing advice, training and technical assistance, and advocating on their behalf with governments, banks, companies and international agencies. The focus of our work is in Latin America, Asia and Africa.

FAO in Myanmar sets out seven priorities for collaboration: 1) Increased agricultural production to enhance food security; 2) Improved food safety and quality; 3) Sustainable management of natural resources and the environment; 4) Land use and land management improvements; 5) Human resource development and institutional capacity building; 6) Rural livelihoods improvement; 7) Preparedness for and mitigation of disasters and climate change.

Funded by the Government of Italy, an FAO project is helping to build sustainable small-scale fisheries and aquaculture livelihoods in coastal mangrove ecosystems in the Ayeyarwady Delta. Since 2010, FAO has worked with 20 communities in villages along the Bogale River, supporting local institutions to jointly implement and co-manage sustainable small-scale fisheries and aquaculture ventures. The project has focused on the Ayeyarwady Delta partly because of the heavy exploitation of fishery resources in that area and also to support populations still rebuilding their livelihoods after Cyclone Nargis in 2008.

The project is the bilateral cooperation between the French Development Agency (AFD) and the Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) that aims at financing the improvement of water service management in Tarmwe Township in Yangon. The project will last until 2018.

The project seeks to implement a technical and commercial management model for the municipality’s water service in the pilot district of Tarmwe in order to address the issue of “non-revenue water” that refers to water that is lost before reaching the customer (physical losses) or unaccounted for (commercial losses).

The project has three components: firstly, equipping the pilot district with the necessary measurement tools for water service management; secondly, strengthening the district water service capacities; and thirdly, providing management tools that allow the replication of such model in other districts of the city. Yangon City Development Committee will implement the project with the support of a technical operator to be selected through a tendering procedure.
