Fishermen in Burma

FSP in Myanmar currently focusses on generating evidence for enabling key stakeholders, especially the new Burmese government, to promote broad-based agricultural transformation and rural economic growth. The project’s carefully targeted and focused research, together with policy analysis and engagement, is designed to improve public policies and investments. Activities are undertaken in a way that strengthens coordination among key stakeholders –government, private sector, civil society and donors. The anticipated outcomes are a policy environment that enhances smallholder productivity and income growth, and encourages domestic and international agribusiness investment.
