The United Nations in Myanmar

The UN serves all people regardless of race, religion, nationality, membership of a political social group or political opinion. The UN supports the Government and civil society to implement Myanmar's reforms and transitions through four main pillars: socio-economic development; peacebuilding; humanitarian action and human rights. This support is guided by the principles of inclusiveness and sustainability as well as rooted in internationally agreed principles and standards.
