During the second week of January 2020, Professor Aung Ze Ya of Yangon Technological University (Ministry of Education, Myanmar) delivered a three-day workshop to the 5th batch of young water professionals (YWP), which is also the 1st batch of the Myanmar Water Academy.
The YWP program is an eleven-month long term program, in which young graduates of Myanmar who have the ambition to become water professionals and government staff from various water-related ministries receive well-defined technical and on-the-job training through the Hydro-Informatics Centre (HIC) under the auspices of the National Water Resources Committee.
Professor Aung Ze Ya’s presentations gave an introduction to FutureDAMS and the project’s work in Myanmar, including the development of the integrated modelling toolset and the Hydra Platform. He also delivered training for the AIRBM (Ayeyarwady River Basin Management) Project and FutureDAMS Hydra Platform to 15 participants from a range of Ministries.
Professor Aung Ze Ya was able to share his experience in water and energy, climate change and hydropower development and Economic Impact Assessment guidelines for Myanmar, and also his knowledge about PowerWorld software regarding the Techno-Economic Analysis of Energy Systems.
