Public-Private Partnership under the South-South Cooperation
Official Development Assistance (ODA) is a framework with clearly defined goals, instruments, donors, and effective spending resources. Development assistant goes to countries and multilateral institutions in the ODA recipient list provided by the development assistance committee (DAC). Funding from donor countries must be provided by state and government agencies and aim to promote economic development and welfare in order to tackle poverty in developing countries. However, the definition of ODA is problematic as the global development agenda has covered broader issues, in particular climate change, security, and migration as well as development cooperation becoming more complex. More actors are involved in the cooperation, especially private sector and civil society. Additionally, new forms of financing development assistance and instruments of development cooperation are emerging and increasingly used (Ministry of Finance, the Netherlands, 2013; OEDC/UNDP, 2014).

S-S-C indicators via Effective practice in Thailand- Vietnam Bilateral Partnership
South-South Cooperation, usually defined as the exchange of resources, technology and knowledge between developing countries, has been going on for more than 50 years. The South-South agenda has seen a remarkable surge in recent years as developing countries are acquiring more voice and influence. Today, South-South Cooperation involves a complex mosaic of governmental and nongovernmental actors, and instruments ranging from one-off activities to budget support and largescale loans. And, although difficult to quantify in financial figures, it is clear that technical cooperation and knowledge exchange have become very prominent among the growing group of middle-income countries.As the most populous and fastest growing continent, South-South Cooperation is thriving in Asia. Asia’s economies have expanded; they have also become more closely integrated through trade, investment, and financial flows.

State – community relations and the integrated water management in Northern Thailand
Water is an important resource for economic and social development, as well as for sustainable livelihood and environment. In general, state gets mandate and has authority to allocate water among users, regulate water rights and use in the public interest, ensure maintenance of water quality, and support users and institutions with research and knowledge. However, water-use right believed, promoted, and practiced at the local level, which is critical for local living, sometimes has different meaning. As noted by FAO, at the local level, livelihood and ecosystem compatibility will determine patterns of water use while at the regional level, consideration of land and water planning and environmental regulation are also included as factors for agricultural development and water-use management. For the macro picture of national level, policy objectives of economic development, food security, poverty reduction, and conservation of nature will be important drivers. (FAO, 2011) Based on these different perspectives, then, the discrepancy between national, regional, and community’s policy and direction regarding development and water use is always found. And due to this discrepancy, water allocation is the most controversial and highly affected issue among users, which, in many cases, has led to critical conflicts not only among stakeholders, but also between state and communities.

The International Nongovernmental Development Organization and Aid Coordination for Youth in Myanmar
New development thinking has complemented the traditional approach by creating more venues for non-state actors to get involved. As development aids become a multi- actor process, it is more complex to understand both the institutionalized and ad hoc nature of the relationships among these actors especially those operating internationally. Under human resource development theme, young people are targeted as the main beneficiary as well as the active participants in development assistances via international non-governmental organizations (iNGOs). However, limited information about their organization structures, the relationship and coordination arrangements with government-led aid agencies and other donors prevent us from understanding their contribution in eliminating the duplication of efforts and rationalizing donor activities for cost-effective results. Especially those that channel financial supports and technical assistances to youth in Myanmar, country overwhelmed with the influx of development actors and businesses alike since 2011 as it attempts all sector reforms whilst progressing toward stability and democratic regime. This research proposes the mapping of donor community in Myanmar youth sector and provides information about iNGOs’ institutional arrangements that show how different actors interact, include and relate to each other in a coordinated manner, and what strengths and weaknesses the coordination arrangements of these iNGOs might hold. Information on issues related to the organization and management of aid coordination activities will be derived from the semi-structured interviews follow-up with self-completion questionnaire with 3 internationally organized and internationally active nongovernmental development aid organizations providing funding, capacity building, and other technical assistances for youth in Myanmar (Save the Children, IFRC-MRCS, Oxfam).

The Role of Non-governmental Organizations in Myanmar
This article investigates the relationship between the Myanmar government and non- governmental organizations in international relief and humanitarian ground since 1988, when Myanmar has moved from planned economy. As these nongovernmental organizations have become instruments to become as the supporting factors in government's response to disasters, crises and restructuring in socioeconomic situations. Comparing with neighboring countries, questions have grown about donor - partner relationship, Myanmar is said to have been inadequate. Current situation, total numbers of NGOs and INGO in Myanmar from 1991 to 2015 was only 43 organizations. Other neighboring countries of Myanmar has larger number than this Myanmar figure. Why have NGO and INGO levels in Myanmar been so low?
