Investing in Agriculture and Sustainable Rural Development in Myanmar

IFAD provides loan to join hands in reducing poverty and increasing food security in Myanmar’s central dry zone

A project supported by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) will reduce poverty and help the country to increase food security and re-establish itself as a major agricultural producer and exporter in the region. The project will benefit 183,400 vulnerable women and men in Myanmar’s Nay Pyi Taw region, located in the central dry zone. 

The project will develop a sustainable model for smallholder agriculture and rural development for Myanmar’s central dry zone. If successful, the model can be used in the country on a larger scale. Myanmar, one of the poorest nations in Asia, has embarked on a path of political and economic reforms to reduce poverty and food insecurity, foster economic growth, and to promote inclusive social development.
