Briefing Paper on Research on Agricultural Investments

Agricultural investments are crucial to improve productivity and to raise the incomes and food security. Investments by small-holder farmers themselves are the main source of agricultural investments, but another major source are domestic and international companies who are interested to invest in Myanmar’s agricultural sector. These investments create major opportunities for Myanmar’s majority small-holder farmers, but they can also pose threats to their livelihoods and natural environments. The objective of this research therefore is A) to increase understanding of the impact of corporate and small holder agriculture investments on food security and rural livelihoods in Myanmar and B) to analyse the policy and stakeholder environment related to the Agricultural investment law and policy initiatives, and provide recommendations to the FSWG1 for policy advocacy to promote good practices for agricultural investments, and supportive pro‐poor public policies that reduce food insecurity in Myanmar.
