Pyoe Pin Institute

In Myanmar, the source of divisive conflict is often linked to the battle to control natural resources. Pyoe Pin Institute works to redistribute power over those resources. They help communities manage their freshwater fisheries and promote policies that recognize their rights to management.


Kyaw is a political economist and has devoted his life to helping Myanmar become more peaceful, democratic and environmentally sustainable. Through policy and coalition building his organization improves governance of natural resources (mostly freshwater and mangroves) and secures tenure rights for communities of small-scale fishers and farmers. He has also played a central role in the revision of Myanmar's fisheries law.
