On Tuesday, January 29th2019, the Myanmar Government and the United Nations’ agricultural agency signed a multi-year plan to improve nutrition and food security while safeguarding and sustainably managing natural resources.
Rural income generation is critical for building resilience in Myanmar. Enhanced resilience will help local farmers combat natural and humanitarian disasters, climate change, as well as transboundary and emerging infectious disease. The country has experienced a decline in malnutrition in just a few decades.
Agriculture is the primary source of income for most households in Myanmar. Prior to military rule, the nation was known as the rice bowl of Asia as it exported nearly 1.7m tons of the commodity between 1961 to 1963. Today, the country is experiencing food scarcity. The population density of Myanmar is high, creating challenges for food and land scarcity. Relying on food importation increases the risk of famine due to poor infrastructure and large distances between markets.
