dc.description.abstract International best practices, and case studies in village institutional development or local governance systems are reviewed in this paper. It argues that village development committees (VDC) have the potential to provide stronger community-led governance, empower communities, and support more effective rural development. As well, it proposes some framing questions to help the Myanmar Department of Rural Development (DRD) develop policy options for enacting the 2019 Rural Development Law. It provides guidelines for organizing village development committees, drawing from the manuals currently used by the DRD in village committee formation. en
