A discussion paper by Oxfam on public financial management in Myanmar looks at the challenges and opportunities for public financial management reform, and the role that development actors can play in promoting inclusive reform. The discussion paper also looks at the role of public financial management in deepening social accountability, and in promoting legitimate governance. CESD’s research in public financial management, undertaken jointly with The Asia Foundation, is referenced in Oxfam’s paper.
MDRI-CESD’s Executive Director and a presidential economic adviser, Dr Zaw Oo, is a special coordinator for the National Natural Disaster Management Committee (NNDMC).
The Asia Foundation and CESD report on Development Affairs Organizations (DAOs) looks at how DAOs are structured and how they operate, outlining their history, functions, key business processes (at the state, region and township levels), and how they have been redefined in recent years.
