Event description: 

In order to establish sustainable peace in Myanmar, it is important to agree among the political stakeholders in Myanmar especially the ethnic armed organizations and the government of Myanmar on the natural resource governance - ownership , management, revenue sharing, and social and environmental impacts.

In September 2017, the Ethnic Nationalities Affairs Center-ENAC published this paper (please find here -http://www.burmaenac.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/ENAC_NaturalResource….)
The paper has two case studies: natural gas in Arakan State and Jade in Kachin State. Established in 2013, ENAC is an independent resource, training, and education center supporting the peace process and development of democractic insitutions in Myanmar (http://www.burmaenac.org).
