WFP Myanmar Mid-Project Update - July 2014

In 2013 , WFP launched a new three-year Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation (PRRO 200299). This provided a good opportunity to review and realign activities with national priorities in a period characterized by an unprecedented, rapid and multifaceted transition in Myanmar. As an overarching goal of WFP in Myanmar for the implementation period of 2013-2015, WFP has aimed to contribute to more equitable development across the country and support national reconciliation efforts by reducing poverty, food insecurity and undernutrition and increasing resilience among the most vulnerable communities.

Since the current project is already half way through, this publication aims to provide a brief and vivid overview of five operational (relief,nutrition,support to HIV/TB clients, school feeding and assets creation) and three thematic (VAM, Supply Chain Management and Emergency Preparedness & Response) activities of WFP in Myanmar, featuring major highlights from January 2013 through June 2014.
