Context

The ban on opium cultivation by the government has led to acute food shortages for the ethnic groups in Wa Special Region No. 2 (Myanmar/ Burma). As a consequence of a forced relocation they have lost their traditional coping mechanisms and lack the necessary resources and agricultural land to secure their food and livelihoods.
