    The current humanitarian situation in Myanmar represents protracted displacement, human- and natural-induced crises, statelessness, limited access to food, health and livelihood opportunities, limited humanitarian access, landmines and explosive remnants. In Rakhine State, the situation remains tense with inter-communal tensions reported in some areas, particularly affecting women and children. In Kachin and Shan states, the escalation of armed conflict induced new and secondary displacements. To rebuild agricultural livelihoods affected by human-induced crises and natural disasters, FAO requires USD 7.5 million to assist 143 000 people from January to December 2019.

    In Rakhine State, the situation deteriorated dramatically in late 2017. After a series of armed attacks on border guard police posts in northern Rakhine, violence led to mass displacement, including 688 000 people who have sought refuge in Bangladesh since 25 August. Since 2012, violence has resulted in the internal displacement of 241 000 people across the country. The humanitarian situation is characterized by a complex combination of vulnerability to natural disasters, food insecurity, poor nutrition, armed conflict, inter-communal tensions, statelessness, displacement, trafficking and risky migration.

    Myanmar | Revised humanitarian response (May–December 2020)

    The humanitarian situation in Myanmar is characterized by a complex combination of vulnerability to natural disasters, food insecurity, malnutrition, armed conflict, inter-communal tensions, displacement, trafficking and perilous migration. So far, the Yangon/Bago metropolitan region of Myanmar has been most affected by COVID-19, while 10 out of 15 states and regions have reported cases. In case of a major surge in numbers, the health system would be quickly overloaded. On 13 March 2020, the Government set up the Central Committee on Prevention, Control and Treatment of Coronavirus Disease, and responded with a wide range of urgent and essential measures to prevent the spread of the virus. While food production does not yet seem to have been impacted, rural livelihoods are facing increasing financial pressure in the midst of decreasing incomes and remittances as the planting season begins. In the framework of the Global Humanitarian Response Plan for COVID-19, FAO has revised its humanitarian response for 2020 to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and address the needs of the most vulnerable households.
