FAO country programming framework for Myanmar 2017-2022

Source(s):  Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations - Headquarters (FAO)

The Myanmar Country Programming Framework (CPF) outlines the priority areas of FAO support to and partnership with the Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar (GoRUM) in the six-year period from 2017 to 2022. The CPF will contribute to achieving government strategies and policies, respond to specific needs of Myanmar by focussing on government priority areas and guide FAO’s technical assistance to the Government. It does not prescribe a rigid framework; rather, the CPF can be revisited and changed when required according to government priorities during the period.

This CPF makes particular reference to the fact that Myanmar is highly prone to natural hazards and has experienced several significant disasters in the last 10 years. Provision of humanitarian support to the country remains a key priority also in the context of ongoing religious and ethnic dissension, extreme weather events and climate change, all of which lead to large-scale migration. According to the Global Climate Risk Index 2017, Myanmar ranks among the top three countries most affected by weather related events, which has led to massive displacement of people and the destruction of livelihoods, crops and other food sources. Agriculture sectors are particularly vulnerable, already absorbing up to 30 percent of loss and damage on average.
