The United Nations in Myanmar

The United Nations serves all people regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, membership of a political or social group, political opinion or other status. The United Nations supports the Government and civil society partners in the context of the Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan as they strive 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.
