MYA/Support to Democratic development and Rule of Law building in Myanmar


Finland supports the UNDP Pillar III programme, which aims to support building democracy and rule of law in Myanmar. UNDP's structures, procedures and processes are familiar to Finland. UNDP's country programme for Myanmar corresponds to the principles and conditions supporting Finland's preparations. UNDP has created close relations to Myanmar's central government. UNDP's neutral and objective profile helps maintain reliable contacts. UNDP brings several donors together and creates a framework for the aid coordination through the country programme. The programme also provides a setting for dialogue on different levels from the central government to the local communities. It is particularly important because good governance is not itself part of the aid architecture where the government would be participating. UNDP's country programme is directly aligned with the principles of Finland's Development Policy Programme. The higher development goal is strengthening of democratic institutions and advancing of human rights with the democratic governance and rule of law development. The cross cutting themes are human rights based approach, gender equality and strengthening of the status of women as well as southern cooperation.
