This comprehensive ten year National Strategic Plan targets the key areas that affect women’s lives, and indicates practical ways to address the issues that Myanmar women are experiencing. This Plan is based on the 12 Priority Areas of the Beijing Platform for Action and the principles of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, to which Myanmar became a signatory in 1997. It is an ambitious yet achievable Plan that will require the political will and commitment of all Ministries, national non-government organisations and Myanmar’s development partners, to resource and implement the Plan. Its implementation will be as strong and successful as the partnerships that are built around it – and we all have a role to play if women in Myanmar are to be empowered and able to fully enjoy their rights.
