DRR-Team Arrives in Myanmar

A Dutch Risk Reduction Team (DRR-Team) is now in Myanmar as an adviser the local government on flood control and solutions for flash floods.

Following last year’s hurricane Komen that severely affected the country, Melanie Schultz van Haegen, Dutch Minister of Infrastructure and Environment offered Nyan Tun Aung, Minister of Transport of Myanmar, a DRR-Team to support the reconstruction process in the country.

A DRR-Team consists of pre-selected experts from the Dutch Water Sector, which can quickly be fielded thanks to the support of the Dutch government.

DRR-Team Myanmar focuses on two regions:

  • flood control and dike management in the Ayeyarwady delta region;
  • management of and early warning for flash floods in Kale Township Area (Sagaing region).

The team will split up to travel to the Ayeyarwady delta region and the Kale Township area. The team is in Myanmar from August 31 until September 6th.
