Each year, as Burma’s monsoon season reaches its peak, stories of inundated fields, homes and entire villages pour into the DVB newsroom.

2014 Strategic Response Plan Myanmar (December 2013)

SUMMARY

Since 2011, the Government of Myanmar has made rapid progress on its reform agenda, particularly in the area of democratization and peace building. Meanwhile, humanitarian needs have significantly increased in some areas over the last two years, with the most urgent stemming from inter-communal violence in Rakhine State. Although efforts are being made to find durable solutions and prevent long-term displacement, tensions in Rakhine State remain high and there remains a risk of further violence and displacement in 2014.

By MYO ZAW LINN 20 June 201

Relief efforts in Kachin and northern Shan states are falling short, according to a prominent NGO working in the war zone.

Over 100,000 civilians have been displaced by two years of conflict, and many are now sheltering in makeshift camps across government or rebel-controlled territory, as well as in Yunnan State, China.
