FAO assistance to conflict-affected communities in northern Rakhine, Myanmar

May 2016

Three years on from significant outbreaks of inter-communal violence across Rakhine State, hundreds of thousands of people remain in need of humanitarian assistance. With a poverty rate of 78 per cent, Rakhine is one of the least developed areas of Myanmar. To compound this further, the state was one of the worst-hit parts of Myanmar during the floods in 2015.

This audio file from a livestock distribution includes interviews with FAO’s Emergency Coordinator in Myanmar and FAO’s National Agronomist based in Sittwe, Rakhine, regarding how FAO is supporting conflict- and flood-affected communities through this CERF-funded emergency project.
