This document provides the initial poverty and social analysis conducted to identify people people who may be beneficially or adversely affected by the Yangon Urban Renewal and District Cooling Project in Myanmar and to assess the significance of social issues.

The project will help address the country’s immediate and urgent need for quality infrastructure to facilitate the growing business and tourism demand and thereby contribute to economic growth, indirect and direct job creation (including women), demand for locally sourced goods and services, greater foreign exchange, tax revenues, and enabling small and medium business opportunities.
