Myanmar

In Myanmar, we work with people across the country to help them build peace.

We work with local civil society groups to reduce sexual and gender-based violence, and to advocate for more inclusive and comprehensive approaches to integrating gender into peacebuilding.

We work with the government, civil society, businesses, international agencies and other stakeholders to strengthen land and natural resource governance, in order to help reduce land and natural resource conflicts and support sustainable natural resource management.

We also work with economic development partners, including local businesses, to encourage the use of conflict-sensitive business practices and peace-conducive economic development.

Our work is important because Myanmar continues to face major challenges in building sustainable and inclusive peace. To support durable peace in the country, it is vital that the drivers of conflict are addressed in a conflict- and gender-sensitive way.

We have been working in Myanmar since 2012.
