Social Environmental Assessment (SEA) of the Hydropower sector in Myanmar

Led by Myanmar’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation (MONREC) and the Ministry of Electricity and Energy (MOEE) with support from IFC and the Australian government, the Strategic Environmental Assessment of Myanmar’s hydropower sector has been completed. You may access the documents in English and Myanmar. It outlines an informed hydropower pathway for each major basin that takes a balanced approach, aiming to replace piecemeal project-by-project planning. 

Drawing on stakeholder views, advice and recommendations the SEA provides a deeper understanding of the importance of Myanmar’s values and reliance on riverine resources. Public feedback is still being gathered and will be closed on July 20th for Stage 1. To offer your comments on Stage 2 and Stage 3
