Both environment as an academic subject and environment as an occupational profession are not well developed in Myanmar. A number of consultation exercises during Grant Stage 1 and at the March 2018 TIDE Launch workshop with academics from Myanmar were used to scope out the full range of environmental subject needs as well as those given highest priority by the participants. A topic as broad in relevance as environment is difficult to cover fully and choices had to be made to balance the in-country preferences with the collective expertise from the three UK universities involved in TIDE. But, from this broad needs-assessment the chosen environmental subject focus of the series of four residential schools and other activities were:
- Water and Pollution
- Biodiversity and Conservation
- Environmental Health and Waste Management
- Climate Change
This collection of resources covers most of the professional development activities that focused on environmental and sustainable development topics relevant to Myanmar, namely water and pollution, biodiversity and conservation, waste management and environmental health, and climate change.TIDE project enriched distance learning in Myanmar by building the capacity of Higher Education staff and students, enhancing programmes of study, and strengthening systems that support Higher Educational Institutions (HEI) in Myanmar. TIDE was part of the UK-Aid-funded Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education Innovation and Reform (SPHEIR) programme(www.spheir.org.uk). SPHEIR is managed on behalf of FCDO by a consortium led by the British Council that includes PwC and Universities UK International. The TIDE project closed in May 2021.
