The Urban Research and Development Institute (URDI) this week launched its first training on sustainable urban land management as part of new collaboration between the Government and UN-Habitat supported by Norway.
The new programme is intended to build state and municipal government capacities to make informed decisions on land issues faced confronting Myanmar’s rapidly growing cities.
Thirty participants from the General Administration Department of the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Department of Rural Development from all states and regions, as well as the Yangon and Mandalay City Development Committees joined the six-day programme
. The course is led by Myanmar and UN-Habitat experts.
