The MIMU 3W gathers inputs from participating agencies on Who is doing What, Where, across Myanmar. It is currently conducted every 6 months.

218 agencies participated in the March 2016 3W, providing information on their activities in 22 sectors and 158 sub-sectors which have been defined by technical/sector working groups.
