About the Project
The SARL project aims to assist the Government of Myanmar in achieving its vision of ‘inclusive and continuous development’ by strengthening accountability, access to justice and rule of law systems. To do so, SARL will work across all levels of the three government branches.
UNDP will support a strengthened Anti-Corruption Commission to lead a national effort to tackle high-level corruption and to promote transparency and accountability at all government levels.
Union, Region and State Parliaments will be supported to strengthen oversight mechanisms through appropriate committees and to increase their capacity to fully represent the interests of their constituents.
SARL will work to improve the justice and human rights sector with the Union Attorney General’s Office, the Office of the Supreme Court of the Union and the Myanmar National Human Rights Commission to strengthen the application of rule of law and administrative justice principles, and to promote awareness and protection of human rights.
Across these intervention areas, people will be engaged to increase their role in accountability mechanisms, administrative review and oversight processes.
UNDP will also engage the public in understanding and accessing accountability mechanisms, and how to seek redress from unfair, arbitrary, incorrect, or discriminatory outcomes and improper use of public powers.
To support the Government of Myanmar to strengthen institutions, systems and capacity that ensure people can access administrative and criminal justice that is fair, transparent and accountable based on human rights and rule of law.
