Food systems in Myanmar have the potential to be highly productive and support the demands of a growing population. This project aims to promote agricultural productivity and nutrition and to enhance livelihoods through an improved policy environment. New policies that enhance agricultural productivity and efficiency in Myanmar are hampered by a lack of research into the country’s food system. This project aims to generate and disseminate knowledge on targeted policy issues for which hard data is weak, and to use this new information to influence agriculture policy and promote reforms to increase private sector investments in the agricultural sector. It will also foster fair and sustainable policies to improve the circumstances of the country’s rural poor through greater productivity, better market access, increased investment, resilient livelihoods and increased food supply.
