All Ministries and City Development Councils have met in Nay Pyi Taw on 26 and 27 October to prioritize actions in these sectoral action plans for implementation under the Myanmar Union Budget 2018-2019. UN-Habitat and UN Environment have used a mix methodology to facilitate the prioritization. The ‘Delphi’ methodology and a discussion, thus ensuring a bottom-up and top-down good balance.

Each sector selected 2 priority actions and 4 potential additional actions to begin immediately.
