Myanmar is currently in the process of working on its TNA. It has completed its sectors and technology prioritization process and is currently working on its second reports (Barrier Analysis and Enabling Frameworks).
Myanmar is located in Southeast Asia, where it faces the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea and borders India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand. It is home to more than a hundred ethnic groups. Myanmar relies heavily on agriculture for income generation and economic growth, and 75% of the rural population base their livelihoods in the agriculture, livestock and fishery sectors.
Many of the drivers of poverty and potential growth opportunities in Myanmar are connected with water management within the agricultural sector, which it is aimed to improve. Among the key challenges in achieving sustainable development are increasing crop production and trade, improved weather forecasting, increasing adaptation to extreme flood and drought events, and better strategies for water storage. Addressing these challenges is fundamental to securing long‐term stability and progress within the country.
