Myanmar - Emergency Food Security Assessment in Southern Shan State, March 2012

The objective of this assessment was to explore the extent to which household food security status has been impacted by Government poppy eradication efforts.
Designed as a rapid assessment, WFP assessed the 10 villages identified as most affected by the Government. Thus, findings apply only to the 10 villages assessed and cannot be generalized to other communities in Pekon and Pinlaung townships. In each village, one key informant interview was conducted as were 20 household interviews.
