Myanmar and the Natural Resource Charter: 28 Priority Issues for the Extractive Industry

The Myanmar EITI process provides the first multi-stakeholder forum for discussion of the extractives industries and its impacts within the country. Under the coordination of the Ministry of Finance (MOF) and the Myanmar Development Resource Institute (MDRI), engagement between government, civil society and the private sector has started. However, in many cases these discussions take time given their technical complexity and because they are built on many years of distrust between the different stakeholders. Seeking to complement these efforts, this report aims to provide a unified structure to build common understanding about the challenges Myanmar faces in transforming extractive wealth into tangible benefits, including accounting for the social and environmental costs associated with the extractive industries. Drawing on the stakeholder consultations and independent research, the report seeks to identify shared priorities and opportunities for policy change going forward.
