Improved Food and Livelihood Security (IFLS) Project Midterm Report

Publication Date: 01/06/2007

40-page midterm report. The objective of IFLS is increased food and livelihood security for marginalised communities in 44 villages in southern Chin State . The project is also addressing one of the country’s major environmental problems – unsustainable shifting cultivation in mountainous areas. Mindat and Kanpetlet townships are spread over mountain ranges, with sparsely scattered villages in (at times) inaccessible terrain. Villager populations are primarily subsistence farmers with little or no access to markets for their produce. Increasing population and scarcity of land adds to environmental degradation and a decline in agricultural productivity
