In Myanmar, there are four main rivers of which Ayeyarwaddy River is the longest one. Over 90% of the Ayeyarwaddy River basin lies within Myanmar and the river drains over 55% of the country’s surface area. The rural population - 70% of which includes over 100 ethnic groups - relies heavily on rivers for their livelihoods and culture. Therefore, Ayeyarwaddy is very important for transport, food and livelihoods of Myanmar people and it is tied with Myanmar culture.
