Background

The current context in Myanmar is characterized by political and security instability, compounded by the Covid-19 pandemic. Economic growth has been  severely constrained by the pandemic and poverty is expected to increase substantially . Millions of the ‘near poor’ and vulnerable people in urban areas are expected to fall into hunger in coming months, with the already poor in rural areas all but guaranteed to fall into deeper poverty.

All this happens just as reliable information on the multifaceted and differentiated impact of the political instability and COVID-19 is either absent or lagging. Official data – at least publicly available is very limited. To meet the urgent need for information about the transmission effects of both the pandemic and political crisis onto the country’s stability, cohesion, socioeconomic fabric and development pathway, UNDP will conduct a range of surveys under the Myanmar Development Observatory.

In support of the survey work, UNDP Myanmar requires the services of an Economic Analyst, with experience conducting research and analysis on contemporary economic issues in Myanmar and Southeast Asia.
