    Améliorer la production de bétail au Myanmar - TCP/MYA/3502 2018
    Also available in:

    On reconnaît de plus en plus le rôle de l’élevage dans le maintien et le soutien des moyens de subsistance et de l’état nutritionnel des pauvres, mais le secteur de l’élevage au Myanmar est dominé par des petits producteurs qui n’élèvent que quelques d’animaux selon des systèmes de production et de gestion traditionnels. Les pratiques d’élevage utilisent peu d’intrants et sont assez élémentaires. L’adoption de bonnes pratiques d’alimentation et d’élevage et l’utilisation de ressources alimentaires et fourragères disponibles localement sont essentielles pour garantir la productivité des animaux. Ce projet a été mis en oeuvre pour renforcer les capacités techniques, gestionnaires et politiques des acteurs publics et privés et pour remédier aux insuffisances graves en matière de capacité à développer des stratégies d’alimentation animale appropriées, afin d’améliorer la production de lait et de viande.

    Improvement of Data Collection on Fisheries and Aquaculture Production: Pilot System for the Yangon Region - TCP/MYA/3601 2020

    No results found.

    Reliable and detailed fishery statistics are a key todeveloping sound policies, better decision-making andresponsible fisheries management. Such information isalso essential for assessing the validity of fisheries policyover the years and for tracking the performance offisheries management. For some years, FAO has noted aconstant and impressive increase of capture andaquaculture production officially reported by Myanmar.Marine catches reported in 2013 were 5.5 times those in1996 and inland water catch statistics have grown at arate of 15.5 percent per year since 1999. Speciesbreakdown of capture fishery statistics is very poor,however, with marine catches reported by only threehighly aggregated species items and no breakdown beingmade for inland water catches. Following an FAO missionin November 2014, recommendations were made toimprove Myanmar’s data collection system for fisheriesstatistics. Given the size of the country, it was decided todevelop a pilot project in the Yangon Region in order totest and gain experience on the structure and constraintsof the new data collection system. After the local pilotphase, the system would be extended to the nationallevel.

    Integrated Home and School Gardens for Food Security in Myanmar - TCP/MYA/3505 2019
    Also available in:

    Myanmar is undergoing a trend of urbanization, bringing new opportunities and challenges, and changing the underlying causes of malnutrition in urban and peri-urban areas. The current project was designed to explore innovative opportunities to reduce food insecurity and malnutrition in Dala and Hlegu Townships, two rapidly changing peri-urban areas in Yangon. The project aimed at improving the diversity and use of nutrient-rich safe foods through a combination of agriculture and nutrition training and the establishment of hydroponic home and school gardens. Target groups included third and fourth grade schoolchildren in five identified schools, teachers/principals, and women from households with school children as well as from households receiving hydroponic gardens.
