UNDP has been implementing its Human Development Initiative in Myanmar townships since 1994, providing support to poor communities in areas of food security, primary health care, environment, HIV/AIDS, and training and education.
UNDP is now beginning to scale up work in Myanmar in response to the country's political reconciliation and transition, focusing on democratic governance and rule of law, community development, climate change, and disaster risk reduction.
