This project will map out the economic and political drivers and rationales – as well as their potential impacts – that shape water governance in the Salween-Thanlwin-Nu River Basin. Its goal is to catalyze more inclusive, informed and accountable decision-making, in particular ensuring that the rights and entitlements of marginalized communities – both women and men – are recognized. At the centre of our analysis is consideration of difference, including gender and ethnicity, and how this both shapes and is shaped by water governance processes and practices at multiple scales.
