Policy and advocacy

MEC directly advocates for issues relevant to the MEC mandate, strategy and thematic focus areas, but also supports partners to jointly advocate for issues faced in their communities.

Advocacy initiatives include public awareness raising and campaigning. Policy engagement involves directly or together with partners developing evidence-based policy recommendations and participating in consultations on legislative and education policy reforms.

MEC also actively supports network and civil society coalition building in Myanmar. In this section, you can read about the MEC and partners’ achievements in the areas of advocacy and policy engagement up to the end of 2015.
