EWMI Programs in Burma (Myanmar)
The Oak Foundation Human Rights Programme selected EWMI and Partners Asia to carry out its new Donor-Advised Fund in Burma, with the aim of supporting the government’s declared commitment to the development of the rule of law as the nation begins its transition to democracy. The three-year, $2,000,000 project provides grants to local organizations in Burma, while providing technical assistance to these groups as they develop legal aid strategies and build up their individual organizational capacity.
The Open Development Initiative (ODI) is an open data and information network developed by EWMI that sheds light on development trends in the Lower Mekong Basin. The lower Mekong basin is a trans-boundary ecosystem shared by 6 countries providing a central livelihood and food security to 65 million people as the largest inland fishery in the world.
