Climate change threatens livelihoods in Myanmar's drylands

One third of Myanmar's population lives in the country's dry zone, which is particularly affected by climate change. Free water resources are drying up, and rural communities are suffering from this scarcity. Some are forced to contact loans for access to water. The government of Myanmar and UNDP are setting up local programs to improve access to drinking water, develop irrigation, work on reforestation, improve agricultural and livestock techniques, as well as promote soil fertility.
