Pyoe Pin wins international development award

The significant achievements that the Pyoe Pin project has made to civil society strengthening in Burma were recognised this month at the annual British Expertise International Awards.

The project won the award for ‘Outstanding International Development Project in a Fragile State’. The award was presented to members of the project team on 14 April in London by British Expertise.

The award recognised Pyoe Pin as a shining example of an effective, partnership-based approach to stability and development in challenging environments, and particularly for the work the project has done with fisheries in the Rakhine state.

Funded by DFID, SIDA and DANIDA, Pyoe Pin has been running since 2007 and is currently in its second phase. The project works to bring stakeholders together through issue-based projects aimed at developing more effective services, improving economic opportunities, and strengthening the rule of law.
