Summary:

This brief presents such an approach and insights from research collaboration between Ar Yone Oo – Social Development Association (Myanmar) and Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden). These organisations partnered in 2017, to document lessons from Ar Yone Oo’s STRONG project activities for disaster affected communities in northern Chin State and western Sagaing Region [3]. The initiative also conducted participatory research, to assess climate vulnerabilities and farming system challenges that project beneficiaries encounter. Insights from this collaboration can inform inter-organisational learning and knowledge sharing for rural development and agroecological initiatives in Myanmar, and across the region
