Summary

More than four months after the political upheaval in Myanmar, the UN agencies have warned of its impact to the country`s economy, extreme poverty, food security and malnutrition. The double punch threats of political turmoil and unsolved corona pandemic have a great effect on people`s lives. In rural areas where we operate since 1996, the deteriorating agricultural supply chain is affecting the villagers` way of living.

Challenge

Located in the Central Dry Zone (CDZ), our project site is the country`s most water stressed area with only 500-600 mm rain per year. It has high incidence of malnutrition and one of the most food insecure regions in Myanmar. 50% of CDZ`s 10.1 million population are landless and 43% of them lives below the poverty line. The unsolved COVID-19 and current political instability triggered the collapse of agricultural supply chain affecting the daily life of farmers living in rural areas.

Solution

Targeting the rural areas, we will provide micro-credit capital, agricultural inputs (seeds and compost), trainings for the production of crops at household and school level, and construct concrete water harvester. Short-term trainings at OISCA Agricultural Center will be organized to educate the locals on practical approach of sustainable agriculture, which they can easily apply on their own home and school gardens.

Long-Term Impact

These interventions will help address the poverty, water crisis, and food security of the locals living in the rural areas. The provision of capital through the micro-credit system, distribution of agricultural inputs, organized trainings will help diversify the income and promote resilience among the marginalized locals.
