Municipal Governance in Myanmar
This report provides an overview of how Development Affairs Organizations manage municipal governance in Myanmar and concludes with considerations for further policy development. The municipal governance of Yangon City and Mandalay City is not covered in this report because unique provisions for the Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) and the Mandalay City Development Committee (MCDC) allow them their own distinct city administrations. The paper methodically defines their history, structures, functions, and key business processes at the state/region and township levels, and the extent to which they have been redefined in recent years as the country has embarked on political and administrative reforms.
The Myanmar Development Resource Institute’s Centre for Economic and Social Development (MDRICESD) and The Asia Foundation are pleased to present this 7th volume in the Subnational Governance in Myanmar Discussion Paper Series.
