UEHRD is an ongoing public-private partnership initiative to address the many challenges confronting the communities living in Rakhine State. Through our own initiatives and in close collaboration with stakeholders, partner organisations and local communities, we implement projects and activities directly on the ground and work across various sectors. Our activities are aimed at both short-term emergency humanitarian assistance and relief efforts, and for medium and long-term development initiatives to create and foster an enabling environment for all communities to achieve a better future in Rakhine.
As one of the poorest regions in Myanmar, Rakhine State requires various investments such as social and physical infrastructure, enterprises to generate decent work, and offer opportunities for all its inhabitants to thrive. UEHRD's task forces have been involved in expanding financial inclusion, developing vocational training initiatives, promoting small and medium-sized enterprises and implementing public-private partnerships for sustainable and equitable development for all inhabitants regardless of their race, religion or ethnicity.
And in the aftermath of the complex humanitarian emergency precipitated by the events of August 2017, UEHRD has been actively delivering emergency relief aid to the communities affected by conflict and IDPs. Through our ten task forces, UEHRD has also built resettlement facilities and villages for the IDPs and refugees. As the Government of Myanmar works to repatriate the refugees, more resources will be needed to help the refugees resettle and rebuild their livelihoods with dignity, while also ensuring peace, security and equitable development in Northwestern Rakhine.
Every contribution makes a difference for the communities.
