Chindwin and Tanintharyi River Basin Consultations on the SEA in Myanmar

Date: December 7-16, 2016
Venue:
Chindwin and Taninthayi River Basins, Myanmar

 

This round of stakeholder consultations for the SEA in Myanmar will take place in the Chindwin and Taninthayi River Basins.

The purpose of these consultations is to engage stakeholders early in the SEA process to:

  • Present the SEA objectives and identify how stakeholder can engage with the process; and
  • Identify key environmental and social (E&S) issues and opportunities related to hydropower development at the basin level.

The SEA, conducted by the International Center for Environmental Management (ICEM), will be led by Myanmar’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation, Ministry of Electricity and Energy, and IFC. The process will include a review of existing information, data collection, developing a GIS database and mapping, and a series of round-table meetings, consultations and workshops with stakeholders and topic-specific technical expert groups. Additionally, IFC will lead a senior-level advisory group to guide the process and provide feedback and recommendations.
