Hydro Advisory  Priorities  Env. & Social Risk Management

Stage 1: Myanmar's Strategic Environmental Assessment of the Hydropower Sector

In this first stage, geographic and temporal boundaries were determined. Through stakeholder consultations, sustainability principles and key themes were refined to identify the key strategic environmental and social issues for each river basin. Information and spatial data was collected to describe the existing status and trends in the key strategic areas.   

 

The SEA team has delivered three key reports in Stage 1 including the inception and scoping report, Stakeholder Engagement Plan Report and a Key Findings Report on River Basin Consultations. Stakeholder consultations were held in river basins across the country with a wide range of stakeholders. In addition, Advisory and Expert Groups will be formed to provide feedback and guidance. To learn more about the SEA's stakeholder engagement process, click here.

 

The Advisory Group will include a mix of senior-level representatives from government, civil society organization, international non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and financial institutions among others. It will provide oversight, support and advise the SEA team.  At this first meeting, the Advisory Group will discuss and provide feedback on the schedule and outputs of the SEA. Subsequent Advisory Group meetings will occur throughout the duration of the SEA to review the process and findings.
