Bagan Multi-Purpose Pilot River Beautification, with Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation, Ministry of Transport, General Administrative Department, Bagan Township, Private Partners

The Bagan river beautification project has resulted in multiple benefits. In the cooperation, between the Netherlands and Myanmar, the 'learning by doing' did not just cover technical cooperation. The project was located in the vicinity of the beautiful old city of Bagan. This project was aimed at combining public and private interests to create a model of a public private partnership(PPP). The learning by doing project was designed to create an unprecedented example of a PPP. The project launched a valuable discussion on how, in the context of Myanmar, a PPP concept can be developed, both for water projects and for the implementation of other projects.
