Connectedness is the defining success factor for the global water sector. Connectedness enables sharing of knowledge, commitment, learning, innovation, collaboration, transparency, accountability. The Myanmar water sector has a unique opportunity to leapfrog by embracing digital technology as a key enabler and accelerator for progress. The Water Agency initiated the Myanmar Water Portal as the digital gateway that connects local and international water professionals and enables them to discover, share, learn and collaborate.
The Myanmar Water Portal is accessible 24/7, supporting desktop and mobile devices. The platform has a public site as well as a secure member-only community. The Myanmar Water Portal provides an online home to the Myanmar Water Community of Practice, the Myanmar Water Hub and the Myanmar Water Academy, allowing its members to effectively share information, build connections, coordinate agendas, plan events, access market intelligence, look-up projects, consult directories (e.g. who’s who), etc.
