The Ayeyarwady River and the Myanmar Economy, Dr. Hannah Belta, WWF Myanmar at World Water Day 2018, NayPyiTaw, Myanmar

The key messages are:

-Myanmar is growing economically and developing socially with a large dependency on natural resources such as the Ayeyarwady river.

-For sustained future growth and development, it is imperative that a healthy Ayeyarwady river is still able to provide necessary goods and services to these sectors of the economy and society.

-Multi-stakeholder perspectives on the possible future development pathways and scenarios for the Ayeyarwady can help Myanmar to prepare for what the future may look like.
