Myanmar is rich in natural resources. If managed well, these resources could support the country’s economic, political and social transformation. To date however, the sector has primarily been associated with corruption, conflict and environmental damage. The Natural Resource Charter provides a framework to explore some of the challenges facing Myanmar. It offers advice on how to maximize the industry’s positive impacts and mitigate potential harm. This can help the Myanmar government, citizens, companies and the international community to identify a path toward better resource governance in the country.
This poster is an introduction to the charter as it applies in the Myanmar context.
