UNDP / Myanmar - Constructing a web-based knowledge management portal to strengthen the governance of the Inle Lake Management Authority by its key stakeholders
Bewsys developed a website for the Inle Lake Management Authority (ILMA). The backstory to the creation of this website was the Government of Myanmar and UNDP’s goal to conserve the Inle Lake. Among its conservation plans was the Governance for Resilience and Sustainability Project. Unfortunately, coordinating and informing the main stakeholders that will promote the implementation of this idea was difficult. This led to the need for a system where information could easily be shared especially for the attention of the target stakeholders.
With the realised increase in the use of digital platforms, Bewsys was charged with developing a website which featured the socio-economic database of Inle Lake as well as interactive maps. There were also two language options available on the website. Bewsys was aided by its e-governance code in the development of this website and liaised with the various partners to determine design and content of the website.
The impact of this website is widespread as it is helping the necessary stakeholders coordinate to promote the sustainability of the environment. It has also made it easier to track progress of the conservation plan and has thus improved Myanmar’s efforts to contribute to the sustainable development goals especially in the area of clean water, climate and sanitation.
Working with Bewsys has been a tremendous journey. We have not reached our destination, but we are enjoying the ride. Although it was supposed to be a corporate function, at meetings, we built rapport and trust with the consultants, and at the same time, they enhanced efficiency and collaboration.
Bewsys sure knows what it’s about. I’m particularly thrilled with the use of technology to accomplish tasks and also with the packaging of deliverables.
Great service. I will recommend any day, anytime.
The Bewsys team worked professionally on our assignment and sought to deliver our needs with great patience and creativity. They are reliable and competent, and I recommend them for any assignment. Bewsys sure knows what it’s about. I’m particularly thrilled with the use of technology to accomplish tasks and also with the packaging of deliverables.
Very professional in their work and client communication. I was really impressed with their ability to meet all their deliverable schedules and, above all, submit a comprehensive user manual. I will recommend them to other projects.
Bewsys has been able to deliver what was expected based on the agreed timelines. The inception mission in the Philippines has been successful, and discussions with various stakeholders have been fruitful. Bewsys showed eagerness to know more about the unique requirements of the portal upon hearing it from firsthand users. They were able to accommodate various questions, comments, suggestions, and recommendations from different stakeholders, mainly from the government side, with each agency with unique requirements.
Bewsys staff are results-oriented and adapted a lot of tasks, and were flexible to ensure the solution they provided was the best. A feather in their cap!
There is a great need for digital systems development in Africa. I think it will be essential to continue supporting institutions such as Bewsys so they can do these jobs better. Also, we need to think about solutions that can be deployed quickly to support other institutions where there is a match in need.
