Myanmar/Burma is at a cross-road since the National league for Democracy led by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi won a landslide election and formed the first democratic government after decades of military rule.
Poor governance, limited rule of law, decades of armed conflict along with years of international isolation have led to structural poverty. Myanmar/Burma remains one of the poorest countries in Asia and face many developmental challenges, not least addressing issues of peace, conflict and an inclusive society for all ethnic groups in the country.
In Myanmar, we work to SAVE lives through humanitarian action, BUILD strong and resilient communities, and FIGHT injustice and inequality. Through a joint office and country programme, Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) and DanChurchAid (DCA) support local and national civil society in their work for human rights, development, and resilient communities. All our activities are aimed at fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals and that no one is left behind in Myanmar’s national development process.
