This project aims to enhance inclusive democratic development in Burma by strengthening citizen engagement, deepening trust and understanding of democratic systems, and building the capacity of communities to participate in their own development. The project targets over 320 ,000 people in Burma and 110,000 Burmese refugees outside the country. Activities include: (1) organizing workshops on human rights, including women’s rights; (2) training media workers from ethnic minority media organizations; (3) supporting the production of publications on key development issues (human rights, environmental protection, gender equality, etc.); (4) training community-level basic health workers to improve decentralized health service delivery; (5) supporting multi-stakeholder consultations to share experiences on participatory, community-based and decentralized health care delivery; (6) training refugees and internally displaced people in entrepreneurship, livelihood skills and democratic governance to facilitate reintegration into Burma; and (7) supporting small-scale locally-initiated projects in Burma to strengthen community capacity to implement development activities using democratic approaches.
