Last March 13-14th, 2016, Katharine Cross from IWA attended the World Water Day at Naypyidaw in Myanmar. They showcased Ayeyarwady Integrated River Basin Management Project. It is expected to benefit millions of poor people whose livelihoods are based on water-dependent sectors like agriculture. It will help protect the lives and livelihoods of those living in areas affected by drought, floods and storms. The project also aims to strengthen the government’s ability to sustainably manage the Ayeyarwady River by developing water resources management institutions and enabling informed decisions about future investments in developing the river (WorldBank, 2014).
