Assessment of Stakeholder Interventions for Sustainable Agriculture in Myanmar’s Dry Zone

The Dry Zone of Myanmar suffers from high levels of poverty and food insecurity. Agriculture is an important source of livelihood but rainfall is concentrated in a few months of the rainy season with erratic duration and wide deviation in annual precipitation. This meteorological character makes the Dry Zone especially vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Climate change is also aggravating the adverse effects of land and environmental degradation leading to poor and fragile soils. The most severely affected are poor, rural families who depend on agriculture for food, nutrition as well as livelihood. Strengthening the sustainability and climate-resilience of agriculture in the Dry Zone, with a focus on smallholders and other vulnerable communities, is thus of critical importance for ensuring food security and income stability.


With over 400 NAG family members, staff from different geographical areas around Myanmar in 13 regions and state, NAG is working with National and international partners and networks for sustainable development of peaceful and prosperous society.
