We are pleased to announce our fourth-quarter newsletter of 2018 (October-December). During the fourth quarter of 2018, CESD continued to focus on labour reform, food security, and aquaculture. CESD facilitated and organised multiple workshops, field visits and other research activities across multiple projects.
CESD attended the First Shan State Forum for Sustainable Fish Production, organised by the Department of Fisheries (DoF) and The Myanmar Sustainable Aquaculture Programme (MYSAP) in Taungyyi, Shan State. During the event proceedings, the CESD also facilitated and conducted the 3rd State and Regional Consultation for the National Aquaculture Development (NADP) that closely resembled the previous consultations at Mandalay and Mawlamyine.
Last week, the CESD staff participated in a disability awareness training organised by the ICCO Regional Office South East Asia and The Leprosy Mission Myanmar. The training assisted the CESD’s researchers to better include people with disabilities from a research and policy perspective which will support the CESD’s mandate of bringing socio-economic reforms that benefit all communities in Myanmar.
The training was an appropriate run up towards The United Nations’ International Day of Persons with Disabilities (December 3rd), which aims to focus on issues that affect people with disabilities worldwide and increase awareness about these communities.
The CESD actively participated in the 3-day Think-Tank Initiative Exchange (TTIx) 2018 held at Bangkok, Thailand organized by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) Canada and the Thailand Development Research Institute (TDRI) with support from the Hewlett Foundation, UKAid, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and NORAD.
The CESD, in collaboration with the Myanmar Sustainable Aquaculture Programme (MYSAP) and the Department of Fisheries (DoF) under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation (MoALI), successfully organised the 1st State and Regional-Level Consultation for the National Aquaculture Development Plan (NADP) in Mandalay yesterday.

We are pleased to announce our third-quarter newsletter of 2018 (July-September). During the third-quarter, CESD continued to focus on its thematic areas of expertise – labour reforms, food security, and value chain analysis. CESD was able to facilitate and organise multiple workshops, field visits, and other research activities with the collaboration of different stakeholders, which included the Government of Myanmar, as well as international and development partners.
As part of its project engagement to draft the National Aquaculture Development Plan (NADP), the CESD team visited Mandalay and Sagaing divisions (Shwebo Township) in order to get a more deeper understanding of the ground-level situation from these regions with regards to the aquaculture sector.
Recently, CESD staff travelled to Twante, situated south-east of Yangon, to do further research on the aquaculture sector in the township. The research is a part of CESD’s engagement with the Myanmar Sustainable Aquaculture Programme(MYSAP), funded by the European Union and GIZ. (more…)
