Myanmar Tourism Sector Wide Impact Assessment

The Myanmar Centre for Responsible Business (MCRB) has conducted its second sector- wide impact assessment (SWIA), this time focused on Myanmar’s tourism sector in partnership with its co-founders, the Danish Institute of Human Rights (DIHR) and the Institute of Human Rights and Business (IHRB). It is intended to provide guidance to underpin responsible business conduct in the sector. The SWIA draws on established environment and social impact assessment methodologies, but applies a human rights lens. The scope of a SWIA goes beyond a particular project. It is about a whole sector and involves assessing not only impacts on individuals and groups that may arise from particular projects, but also the potential for the sector’s impact on society as a whole.
