In September 2013, The Asia Foundation published its first report on Myanmar, State and Region Governments in Myanmar. The report provoked a great deal of interest in subnational governance from government, civil society, donors, and development partners. Since then, 38 reports from the Foundation have looked in greater detail at issues of subnational governance, peace, and conflict. This new edition of the report, published five years after the original, provides a much needed update on the structures and functions of subnational governance in Myanmar, identifying the key political, administrative, and fiscal opportunities and challenges presented by decentralization.
