Mandalay’s Resilience Journey
Agriculture continues to play a major role in Mandalay City. But its increasing significance as a regional commercial hub has raised the profile of this city in Myanmar. Due to its location along the Irrawaddy River, Mandalay City is prone to recurrent floods and is at risk of major earthquakes due to its proximity to the Sagaing Fault. Today, Mandalay has an opportunity to become a model for other cities in the country. By incorporating resilience into its city plan, the city will be poised to better protect the lives and livelihoods of its communities.
