Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

This study presents a rich and contextualised picture of farm household sense-making processes in relation to the rapid agricultural transition currently occurring in Myanmar, while considering the implications of these processes for household food and nutrition security (FNS). This research entailed a literature review on current views among key actors involved in agricultural development and food and nutrition security in Myanmar; a qualitative case study involving ‘positive deviant’ households engaged in agriculture commercialisation in the Dry Zone of Myanmar; and an exploratory analysis of social innovations among smallholder farmers. The reports concluded with a number of reflections and suggestions drawn from the analysis of farmers’ narratives and reflection on the implication of agricultural commercialisation on their livelihoods and diets
