Swedish government supports UNDP programs in Myanmar
June 27, 2016
The Swedish government has given 30 million Swedish krona to support United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) projects in Myanmar.
The funding will go towards projects focussing on democratic governance, local development and environmental sustainability.
UNDP Country Director, Toily Kurbanov said:
“With the initial tranche of funding from Sweden, UNDP has helped improve local governance in Myanmar, with a particular focus on strengthening women’s participation. Our partnership with Sweden has enabled UNDP to strengthen democratic institutions such as the Parliaments, and support justice actors to better engage with the people. With this new tranche of funding from Sweden, UNDP will be better able to support Myanmar’s ongoing transition.”
