According to the bank document, the project seeks to increase the productivity of select high-value commodities, enhance agricultural diversification and competitiveness, and diet diversity in selected agro-ecological zones of Myanmar. This will be achieved through the provision of key public goods and services that will facilitate and further enhance the engagement of (and with) the private sector.
According to the World Bank webpage, this project will support parts of the government’s COVID-19 Economic Relief Plan (CERP), which aims to mitigate the economic impacts of COVID-19 and facilitate the country’s economic recovery.
"The project will support income retention for farmers by improving the quality and utilization of agricultural inputs, and generate labor-intensive cash-for work-activities to create jobs for poor households, in particular for migrants returning to Myanmar after losing jobs abroad due to the pandemic. The project will also support public awareness raising on COVID-19 through social media and other channels."
