In Myanmar, SWISSAID is promoting a strong civil society. Only in this way will peaceful and sustainable development be possible.

In Myanmar, we are working with local civil society organisations and rural communities to provide smallholder families with a better and more resilient livelihood. Agroecological agriculture, improved market access for small producers, better secured forest use rights and the promotion of social responsibility are helping to achieve this. Gender equality and the empowerment of women are central elements.
