Displacement driven by conflict, inter-communal tensions and exposure to natural disasters characterize the humanitarian needs in Myanmar, particularly in Chin, Kachin, Rakhine and Shan states, where the most urgent humanitarian needs are felt. Intensified militarization and migration, and escalation of armed conflict increased risks of protection violations and sparked new and secondary displacements. Affected farmers need support to increase agricultural production and strengthen household assets. Protecting livelihoods and investing in disaster risk reduction will be critical in helping farmers reduce vulnerabilities, enhance resilience and cope better with disasters and other threats to their food security.
