Myanmar has embarked on extensive reform programs, spurring the country's economic growth at 7.3% in 2012-2013. However, these gains are being threatened by climate change. To address this, Myanmar mapped out a National Adaptation Program of Action (NAPA). But much remains to be done.
- Analyze the contemporary state and trends in agriculture under climate change in Myanmar.
- Identify current challenges, opportunities and threats to Myanmar’s agriculture under climate change.
- Map out CSA strategic thrusts, priority programs and their corresponding goals and objectives for five to ten years under different developmental and climate change scenarios.
- Draw up performance measures in achieving Myanmar’s CSA strategy.
Co-organized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Republic of Union of Myanmar, CGIAR Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security Regional Program for Southeast Asia (CCAFS-SEA) and the International Rice Research Institute, this workshop will involve key government officials, national and international partners, civil society and key stakeholders of the country’s agriculture sector.
A draft CSA strategy will be developed based on workshop results, for review by a panel of experts and to be redrafted accordingly.
