Urgent appeal for cyclone-hit communities in Myanmar
FAO seeks USD 33.5 million to help small farmers and fishers restore livelihoods. With the clock ticking on Myanmar’s main planting season, agricultural support is urgently needed to restore food production in the country’s cyclone-hit rice bowl, FAO said today.
Currently, 75 percent of farmers in the country’s main food-producing region lack sufficient seed, with little time left before the end of the planting season in August. FAO is appealing for USD 33.5 million to help cyclone-affected households restore their livelihoods and resume food production during this crucial period.
