Title: Development & Democracy: the UN
Date of publication: September 1998
Description/subject: A November United Nations initiative to promote democratic reform in Burma reportedly ties over a billion dollars in humanitarian and development assistance -- including World Bank funds through the United Nations Development Programme UNDP -- to the lifting of pervasive repression by the country's army junta. The idea faces immense obstacles, however, from World Bank requirements to junta recalcitrance, and raises key questions of UN political and development involvement in Burma.

Title: Micro-Credit Project
Description/subject: "...Sustainable Livelihoods through Micro-Credit for the Poorest is one of 10 projects under the United Nations Development Programme's multisectoral Human Development Initiative Extension (HDIE) programme in Myanmar. It provides credit and assistance in building small businesses to people in 11 of the poorest townships in Myanmar: three in the Delta (Ayeyarwady Division), five in Shan State, and three in the Dry Zone of central Myanmar. The Micro-Credit project targets especially those who would not normally qualify for credit through the banking system: women, the landless, and other marginalized groups. Experience elsewhere has shown that with the right types of support, these people are excellent credit risks; repayment rates often approach 100%. Overall, it is hoped to benefit about 30,000 of the poorest households (200,000 people) in the 11 townships..."

Title: Shan State Food Security Project
Description/subject: The Shan Plateau in eastern Myanmar is an extensive, mountainous upland ranging from 1000 to 2300 m in height. The area is undulating; areas that have been stripped of their natural forest are subject to severe erosion. The area covers the watersheds of four of Myanmar's most important reservoirs: Kinda, Inle, Paung Laung and Zawgyi. Erosion from the uplands threatens to clog these reservoirs with silt, endangering much of the country's hydropower production and irrigation water supplies for the lowlands. The main staple crop is rice, but many other crops are also grown, including wheat, maize, chili, cotton, potatoes, groundnuts, sesame, pulses, tea, tobacco and cabbages. The rainy season lasts from mid-April to mid- November. Farmers in Shan State face numerous problems. The soils are generally infertile, and crop and livestock yields are low. The area's isolation and lack of infrastructure make it difficult for farmers to sell any surplus produce at a profit. Landholdings are small, and population growth forces farmers to overexploit the natural resources: cutting more trees for fuelwood and clearing land on steep slopes for cultivation. This environmental degradation further reduces yields, reinforcing a vicious cycle of poverty.
