This paper brings together available data and information on poverty, nutrition, and vulnerability to food insecurity to identify key vulnerable populations across Myanmar. It also outlines options to improve the food security of the most vulnerable households.

The paper is based on a rapid assessment conducted during a three-week field visit in late 2012 and desk research.

The research is based on three broad types of information:

  1. national surveys on poverty, malnutrition, and health outcomes;
  2. food security assessments conducted by United Nations agencies, donors, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in select geographic areas; and
  3. semi-structured qualitative interviews with key stakeholders across seven of the 14 states/regions in Myanmar’s delta, dry zone, and hilly regions.
