Hlaingthayar is the largest informal settlement in Myanmar. It is currently facing displacement issues due to the New Yangon City development project. In partnership with local organisations Bedar Social Development Group and Another Development, Dr Jayde Roberts is utilising an urban planning and participatory design process to address these issues. The team will focus on urbanism in Yangon through engaging young thinkers and activists in Myanmar to analyse laws and regulations on housing and urban development. The team is also making this information accessible to local communities through information dissemination and locally run workshops to improve local knowledge.
