Abstract
The primary objective of this study is to identify ways to increase the value of existing food security information systems in order to better meet the needs of the decision‐makers and decision‐making processes in Myanmar. The study assesses current information systems against the requirements of government, development partners and other potential users of food security information by analysing both the demand and supply of information. It identifies information requirements; available products that help meet the requirements and identify crucial gaps that need to be filled. Recommendations are provided to guide concrete action aimed at improving the relevancy, efficiency, coordination and integration in data collection, management and dissemination efforts.
