    GIEWS Update – The Republic of the Union of Myanmar, 31 July 2023
    The current critical food insecurity situation could deteriorate in the second half of 2023
    2023

    No results found.

    The current food insecurity situation is critical due to reduced agricultural production in 2022, intensified conflict, record high food prices and the devastating effects of Cyclone Mocha. The conflict triggered record-high civilian displacements, currently estimated at 1.83 million people, a three-fold increase compared to the same period in 2022. Food insecurity could worsen if constrained access to fertilizer and intensified conflict persist, and if the forecast of below-average monsoon precipitation is realized, thus reducing cereal production in 2023.

    The Kakhovka Reservoir, part of the Dnipro cascade of hydroelectric power plants, was an important source of water for arid regions in the southern part of Ukraine. Flooding after the breach of the Kakhovka Dam on 6 June 2023 resulted in relatively limited losses on agricultural production but long-term consequences for irrigation remain, including for maize and other irrigated crops planted in spring 2023. The consequences of the breach raise serious humanitarian, environmental and economic concerns for the region.
