During February, the Centre for Economic and Social Development (CESD) collaborated on research with the World Bank during field visits in Yangon and Ayeyarwaddy in Myanmar. The field visits collected inputs for the World Bank’s ongoing Migration and Labour Mobility research. The research aims to promote jobs and facilitate labour mobility in Myanmar by deepening the policy dialogue, with a particular focus on labour mobility as a source of employment and productivity growth within the ASEAN region.
CESD is a contributing partner to the The Global Poverty Reduction Inclusive Growth (GPIG) Portal, established as a means of sharing poverty reduction knowledge and best practice in the region and around the world. As part of CESD’s role in sharing knowledge and expertise in the region, CESD was confirmed as moderator for the “Gender and poverty” category page, and Myanmar country page of the GPIG portal in July 2016.
CESD co-hosted a workshop, “Change on the ground: Community planning, local governance, and decentralization” with the World Bank and the Department of Rural Development on 20 January 2016.
