Communities recover livelihoods after floods in Myanmar

Apr 2016

Sagaing was one of the worst affected regions by the floods that devastated large parts of Myanmar last July/August 2015, which were associated with cyclone Komen. This audio file includes an interview with a villager who talks about the impacts of the flooding on her land and soil fertility, which has resulted in decreased crop yields; an interview with an FAO Agronomist from the office in Monywa, Sagaing, who talks about the needs of the communities in order to recover after such flooding. The assistance that FAO is providing to this village, amongst others, as part of a CERF-funded emergency project is also mentioned.
