MAN’s way of working is anchored upon SDG17, where sustainable development is achieved through multi-stakeholder partnerships. It leverages the experience and core competencies of partners – many of whom don’t usually interact to collectively develop solutions at scale.

MAN’s unique governance structure reflects this multi-stakeholder approach. Our Co-Chairs – representing the private and civil society sectors – oversee our strategy and operations; our Advisory Council – which includes representatives from international organizations, the donor community and the public sector – provides input on ensuring positive societal and environmental outcomes; while our Core Committee – comprising the Co-Chairs, Advisory Council and Working Group leads – drives action on the ground.

MAN’s model of bringing together the government, private sectors and farmer organizations for collaborative solutions is what Myanmar really needs. It is breaking down the silos that exist between different types of organizations and looking beyond individual projects. The prospects for Myanmar’s agriculture are enormous. However, farmer groups and producer associations still need to build up their capacity, and MAN can play a role in aiding them and facilitating this process.

"

Agriculture related investments will continue to be one of the engines of development and prosperity for Myanmar in the foreseeable future. These investments should benefit everyone, and especially those who are still excluded from major markets such as women, and marginalized communities. Collaboration across stakeholder groups and knowledge exchange are at the heart of MAN, so that agriculture can innovate and adapt to future challenges, become resilient and create win-win situations for all.
