Project Description: 

The Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar is entering into the next phase of the ethnic peace process. Having agreed initial ceasefires with almost all of the ethnic armed groups, the focus will shift towards  implementing and sustaining those ceasefire agreements and initiating a comprehensive dialogue on political issues. To carry out this task effectively, on 3'' May 2012, the Government institutionalised its peace process architecture in the form of the Union Peace-making Central Committee and the Union Peace­ making Work Committee. On 26 October 2012 the President signed a decree creating the Myanmar Peace Center. (Annex F).


 Vision :                  The Myanmar Peace Center plays a  key role in the development  of a peaceful nation inclusive of Myanmar's ethnic diversity.

 Mission:                To  contribute  to  sustainable  peace  and  an  overall  political  settlement  to  the benefit of all the citizens of Myanmar.

 Mandate:           The Myanmar Peace Center (MPC) is established by Presidential Decree to serve as the Secretariat to the Union Peace-making Central Committee and the Union Peace-making Work Committee. The MPC will also serve as the Myanmar government's focal point for international partners and civil society organisations on issues related to the peace process.

MPC Divisions

  1. Ceasefire negotiations and implementation
  2. Peace negotiations and political dialogue
  3. Coordination of assistance in conflict affected areas
  4. Outreach and public diplomacy
  5. Mine Actions

Project Outputs and Key Activities:

The Myanmar Peace Center (MPC) needs to become operational at the earliest and the funding from PBF will be instrumental in ensuring that:

  1. The MPC has relatively sufficient suitable vehicles to access key locations;
  2. Communication equipment is available to facilitate dialogue and information flow in remote locations;
  3. Operations can run smoothly (without interruption due to electricity outages) in Yangon.

PBF Priority Area and Outcomes:

PBF Priority Area: Implementation of Peace Agreements

Strategic Outcome: Myanmar Peace Center commences rapidly with its intended functions, thanks in part to critical gaps filled by the PBF, and it becomes recognized as a critical positive actor in the peace process.
