I. Highlights

• Food insecurity in Chin State may worsen when the monsoon rains start. The rains reduce people's access to other off-farm income-generating activities.

• Higher cost of basic commodities, such as food items and fuel, may worsen food insecurity.

• An increasing lack of job opportunities in Chin State, particularly during the dry season (March-May), may lead to a high rate of economic migration.

• Seasonal water shortage is anticipated during the dry season (March-May) in both urban and rural areas in Chin.
