Improving Fishery Management in Support of Better Governance of Myanmar's Inland and Delta Fisheries
- Known as MYFish 2, the Improving Fishery Management in Support of Better Governance of Myanmar's Inland and Delta Fisheries project is funded by the Australian Center for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR). It builds on the results of a previous ACIAR-funded project, Improving Research and Development of Myanmar's Inland and Coastal Fisheries (known as MYFish 1) which focused on institutional capacity building and supported an improved characterization of fisheries management systems in Myanmar. MYFish2 is going further by improving the understanding of existing fisheries governance, testing and monitoring innovative management options, and strengthening stakeholders' relationships toward better governance of natural resources in the priority fish production area of the Ayeyarwady Delta and the Central Dry Zone. This project is led by WorldFish in collaboration with the Department of Fisheries (DoF) in Myanmar and engages with a broad range of partners through the Fisheries Research Development Network (FRDN).
