Montrose was contracted to provide a concise Social Investment Context and Options Study summarising the social investment (SI) context in Myanmar, with a focus on the client’s targeted geographies and preferred investment sectors.
The purpose of the study was twofold. Firstly, to present a snapshot overview of the context in which the client will plan future social investments from the point of view of multiple stakeholders, including government, civil society, NGOs, politicians, and other private sector actors. Secondly, to provide an analysis of social investment options, given the mapped context, in terms of balancing likely social impact with the client’s corporate objectives, risks, and cost.
Montrose provided the client with a concise report summarising the social investment context in Myanmar, and presenting a social investment options analysis which the client could use as a foundation to inform more detailed strategic social investment planning in Myanmar.
The report looked into Myanmar government policy and the regulatory environment at regional and township level, as well as economic, developmental, and stakeholder context of social investment at present.
It also presented a short overview of the work of NGOs, focusing on the client’s targeted geographies and preferred investment sectors.
The report concluded with an analysis of potential SI areas against client objectives, risks and cost, and recommendations on the way forward.
