UNDP works in Myanmar under a mandate from the
Executive Board which focuses activities at programmes
with grassroots level impact in the areas of basic health,
training and education, HIV/AIDS, the environment and food
security. In response to this mandate, UNDP delivers its
assistance through what is known as the Human
Development Initiative, or HDI.
The HDI is a set of projects which is currently providing
assistance to poor rural communities in 60 townships in 11
different regions of the country. The HDI focuses on helping
communities to meet their basic social and food security
needs, on promoting participation by all segments of the
community in collective decision-making, and on building
capacity so that communities can plan and implement their
own self-help activities.
