Program for Strengthening Preparedness for Emergency Response in Myanmar

Myanmar Preparedness Partnership (MPP) was established in 2017 as an in-country multi-stakeholder platform and has been implementing priority interventions identified through a baseline study and MPP roadmap process. With additional support from USAID's Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA), under the ‘Program for strengthening Preparedness for Emergency Response through Multi-Stakeholder Cooperation in Myanmar’, MPP initiatives are expected to be leveraged and scaled-up by building on the activities carried out in the past year.

Sharing Knowledge with Rubber Plantation Farmers to Protect Livelihoods in Myanmar

"While Kayin State is not prone to cyclones and tsunamis like other parts of Myanmar, other hazards such as landslides and flash floods can harshly impact our lives. As the Chairman of the Rubber Plantation Association, I am aware that these kinds of hazards can cause severe damage to the rubber trees and businesses in my area. The knowledge that I gained at the training was extremely useful and I want this  information to reach as many people as possible. My strategy for the future is to meet with youth and rubber plantation farmers of Hpa An and Hlaing Bwe to share the knowledge.
