Natural Resources and Subnational Governments in Myanmar

The Subnational Governance in Myanmar Discussion Paper Series is a collaborative research initiative between the Myanmar Development Resource Institute’s Centre for Economic and Social Development and The Asia Foundation. The paper series aims to provide Myanmar policy-makers at national and local levels, civil society organizations, the business community, development partners, and other interested stakeholders with timely research on subnational governance issues that directly inform policy and reform processes. This volume of the series is presented in partnership with the International Growth Centre. The research behind the series incorporates the perspectives of a range of government, political, non-governmental, civil society, and community stakeholders in subnational governance, while also bringing to bear the most relevant policy analysis and international experience. The sponsoring organizations welcome inputs and suggestions on published, ongoing, or future research.
