Monthly food security updates outline the key events occurring throughout Myanmar that are currently impacting the food security situation. By focusing on these events, it is possible to highlight areas where food security is likely to deteriorate in the short term, facilitating response and ensuring that all actors are aware of the evolving food security situation. Monthly updates are also intended to provide continuity and context to the WFP’s Quarterly Food Security Bulletins.

  • Rainfall deficiencies in the early and late monsoon seasons have impacted key crop harvests and resulted in water shortages in various parts of the Dry Zone.
  • Yenangyaung and Chauk are amongst the hardest hit townships, with reports of groundnut, sesame and pigeon pea failures and multiple reports of premature depletion of many “rainwater collection ponds”.
  • As a result, the food security situation as well as the health and well-being of communities is deteriorating. Generally, food stocks and purchasing power are lower than normal and lack of water is impacting hygienic conditions and placing additional stress on health of livestock. WFP anticipates further deterioration as the summer season progresses.
