Decentralizing Power: The Role of State and Region Governments in Myanmar’s Energy Sector


This report is a companion report to State and Region Governments in Myanmar, covering the subnational aspects of Myanmar’s energy sector. The Asia Foundation has been providing support and technical assistance to seven states and regions, and has been conducting training with all 14 of the states and regions, with the aim of building technical capacity and better articulating the need for government reforms. Increasingly, we have found that the states and regions recognize energy as an emerging issue on which they would like guidance, assistance, and greater clarity on the overlap between the Union and state/region governments in terms of policy, investment, and legal frameworks.
