The Myanmar Joint Ceasefire Monitoring Committee (JMC) was established under the National Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) as the key instrument for implementing its security-related provisions and inter alia, creating the enabling environment for the peace process. In 2016, the JMC approved the set-up of a Technical Secretariat Center (TSC) - and corresponding secretariats at state and local levels - that would support the implementation of the national ceasefire in accordance with and in compliance to the agreements, Terms of Reference (ToRs) and Standard Operating Procedures (SoP) of the JMC.
In 2017, the JMC in partnership with UNDP established the JMC - Support Platform Project (JMC-SPP).
