Since the country opened its market, Myanmar ─ with support from international financial institutes and development partners – has been investing heavily in infrastructure development. Urbanisation is taking place rapidly in major cities such as Yangon. Investment in port development has also received a lot of attention from the government and development partners. Myanmar is also facing increasing challenges to ensure sustainable water management in the long term in the context of rapid urbanisation and industrial activities. At the same time, capacity building and knowledge development remain crucial for sustainable development of the country.
