Ayeyarwady MyanmarMyanmar Ayeyarwady
Ayeyarwady is the motor of the Myanmar business community.
She supplies the local inhabitants with seafood and paddy and makes it possible to transport goods to and from the rivers. The water is used to drive turbine generators to generate energy, while the sands from its pool are an important part of the building fabric, such as homes, office buildings and streets. The purpose of this paper is to try to find different ways in which the Ayeyarwady is important for both the Myanmar business and the Myanmar community.
They also aim to underline the importance of achieving equitable evolution that ensures that the natural working regimes within the flow continues to sustain economic expansion and evolution as they have for centuries. This is a high point of the stakeholder perspective and input along the flow regarding their perceptions of risk and opportunity.
It shows that it is obvious that the Ayeyarwady basin represents the largest part of the economy's value to the state. Obviously, some of these industries contribute to the deterioration of ecological goods and processes provided by the rivers. Even though Myanmar needs its economy to grow and develop socially, this does not have to be at the expense of the river's wellbeing.
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) ensures that man and the environment can flourish side by side. That'?s what we believe in Myanmar, too. Our aim is to promote Myanmar's economical and societal development without compromising the river continuity. Ayeyarwady River provides goods and service to facilitate much of Myanmar's business and community activity.
Myanmar's population would not be the same without these flow service. In view of the forthcoming choices on hydroelectric power generation trends, industry expansion, fishing and general economics, decision-makers cannot allow themselves to act in isolation. However, they cannot ignore the fact that the European Union is not yet in a position to take the lead. In the absence of a shared vision of the way forward, all industries will be competing and missing chances for holistically effective deployment.
We call for actions for a sustained, free-flowing Ayeyarwady basin as follows: Policy planners need to examine the links and compromises between different paths of evolution and how they interrelate with the human beings in Myanmar who rely on nature's assets and eco-system service. The reduction of water-related risk, whether physically, regulatively or reputatively in the wider Ayeyarwady Basin, is crucial to their long-term commercial objectives. The call for transparency between decision-makers, the wider public and NGOs on preferred opportunities for sustainability in the Ayeyarwady Basin must be continued.
Lastly, the co-ordination of policies and agendas is crucial as Myanmar pursues its path of economical expansion and societal sophistication. Myanmar's government is not the only one to do so, but the same applies to Myanmar's aid. In particular, water management plays an important roll in assisting the co-ordination of a whole range of business activity - from extractive industries to tourist industries and from the upstream watershed to the downstream area.
While it is important that this plan be co-ordinated to make sure that the Ayeyarwady River's singular location, where the Irrawaddy dolphin is endemically found, as well as fishing, manufacturing and quarrying, can remain the foundation of Myanmar's economic fabric, it is also important that it be planned in a co-ordinated way.
