THE National Water Resources Committee conducted a Pre-World Water Day 2016 Technical Conference at the Myanmar International Convention Centre II in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday, prior to World Water Day 2016, which falls on 22 March.
The seminar was held under the two themes of ‘sustainability and systematic management of water resources’ and ‘development of water-related job opportunities and implementation of better multipurpose water management’.
Discussions at the seminar focused on greater cooperation in development of river basins, the establishment of human resources for the management of water resources and challenges to pragmatic undertakings. U Tun Lwin Oo, the director general of the Water Resources Utilisation Department, invited scholars to contribute suggestions for the successful implementation of the undertakings to ensure the systematic management of water resources, including the Ayeyawady River.
The United Nations observed the first World Water Day on 22 March 1993. This year’s theme for the day is ‘Water and Jobs’. Myanmar formed the National Water Resources Committee in July 2013 and has observed the day since 2014.—Myanmar News Agency
