4.6 Conclusion

In this final chapter, you have learned about:

  • Myanmar’s vulnerability to climate change
  • The particular water management issues that the country faces
  • How the current approach to water management is fragmented, sectoral and top–down.

One answer to the resultant level of poor services and unsustainable resource use is IWRM. Working through an inter-sectoral approach will build capacity, adaptability and resilience into the water management system for the future planning and development of Myanmar’s water resources.

You have also reflected on what you could as an individual do to conserve water and you have calculated your own water footprint.
