Abstract/Description

This paper mainly focuses on the involvement of farmers or the public and other stakeholders (in particular, civil society and private sector) in decision-making by the government, as well as the involvement of government employees in decision-making within the government in Myanmar. Participatory decision-making has clear advantages in the different agroecological zones of Myanmar. In the case of the Dry Zone, participatory decision-making can bring particular benefits, as this area of the country is suffering significantly from the effects of climate change. Successfully adapting to changing circumstances requires all stakeholders to share their knowledge and work together.
