What we do
The UN serves all people regardless of race, religion, nationality, membership of a political social group or political opinion.

The UN supports the Government and civil society to implement Myanmar's reforms and transitions through four main pillars: socio-economic development; peacebuilding; humanitarian action and human rights. This support is guided by the principles of inclusiveness and sustainability as well as rooted in internationally agreed principles and standards.
The UN System supports the people and the Government of Myanmar toward achieving their national development priorities and aspirations. This support is provided through the work of the UN agencies funds and programmes in a broad range of development areas such as education, health, employment, nutrition and food security, urbanization, environment, migration, governance and human rights.
The UN has also supported Myanmar through some of its challenges, such as humanitarian assistance and emergency relief provided after the Cyclone Nargis in 2008, Cyclone Giri in 2010, Cyclone Komen and nation-wide flooding in 2015, with noticeable accomplishments in saving lives and alleviating suffering.
The opening of Myanmar has attracted many development partners and private investors. The UN system in Myanmar places high priority on coordinating efforts - the better we are at coordinating our efforts, the larger the impact of our support has on the people living in Myanmar. The UN Country Team in Myanmar therefore coordinates closely with the Government and with development partners in line with international aid effectiveness declarations, such as the Paris Declaration.
