Distribution of agricultural inputs and livestock in the conflict and disaster-prone areas of Myanmar

Feb 2017

With funding from the Government of Japan, FAO is providing emergency livelihood support, that will allow for recovery of over 50 000 agriculture-dependent people in conflict and disaster-prone areas of Myanmar. The villagers from both Rakhine and Muslim communities from Mrauk U and Kyauktaw townships in Rakhine State, received quality seeds, vegetable kits, fertilizers and tools prior to winter season, that will help them diversify their food production and support long-term recovery.

Meanwhile, landless farmers from Falam and Hakha townships in Chin State have been provided with either piglets, chickens or goats, along with vaccines and feed. The livestock distribution allow for the diversification of smallholders incomes, likewise the production of food for subsistence.
