The State of Local Governance: Trends in Myanmar
This report contains a synthesis of the data and findings across all 14 States and Regions and concludes a nationwide local mapping exercise undertaken by UNDP, together with the General Administration Department. The local governance mapping was carried out to better understand how local governance actors, within the context of the current reforms, have been functioning so far. The mapping focused on development priorities and improvements, development planning and participation, and information, transparency and accountability. The findings help assess capacity needs particularly at the township level and below, and encourage local governance actors to adjust to the new situation and to new demands of people-centred service delivery.
