Developing Myanmar’s Local Data Ecosystem
The transition to e-government and digital means of data collection, storage, analysis and use provides the Government of Myanmar with a unique opportunity to rethink ways of working, and develop a local data ecosystem that generates quality data and strengthens the work of government.
Over the past five years, The Asia Foundation has been working with a range of government agencies across Myanmar to improve the collection and use of data, and develop and implement digital systems to support their work. The Foundation’s work helps individual agencies meet their routine responsibilities, but also enables multiple departments to work together to plan and solve local problems collectively and strategically.
Developing Myanmar’s Local Data Ecosystem is based on the Foundation’s experience and learning. We hope that it provides insights of use to all stakeholders in Myanmar’s governance system.
