Job Description

Study to rapidly scale up Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration in Myanmar, to include sustainable finance mechanisms

 

Supervised by:            Sustainable Finance Programme Manager

Duration:                     October 2021 – March 2022

Location:                     Home-based

 

Background

Agriculture is a critical sector in Myanmar, together with Forestry and Fisheries estimated to account for around 25% of the GDP in 2020, with agriculture employing about 50% of the workforce in 2020 (World Bank). Farmer-managed natural regeneration (FMNR) is a low-cost, sustainable land restoration technique used to combat poverty and hunger amongst poor subsistence farmers in developing countries by increasing food and timber production, and resilience to climate extremes. More information can be found at the FMNR Hub - https://fmnrhub.com.au/home/about-us/ FMNR was launched as a pilot by an INGO, in 16 villages in the Magway Region in 2010. Other groups have also initiated FMNR projects in Myanmar. An initial analysis has indicated that FMNR has the potential to deliver transformational impact for smallholder farmers and other groups in Myanmar, while significantly improving the natural environment and ecosystems where it is implemented.

WWF Myanmar seeks to explore the possibility of developing FMNR in Myanmar on a large-scale (million(s) hectares) and a long-term (decade(s) long) basis.

Objective

The objective of this study is to inform a roadmap for the implementation of FMNR in Myanmar, and should answer the following key questions:

1.   What is the current state of FMNR in Myanmar?

2.   Who are the stakeholders for FMNR in Myanmar?

3.   What are the opportunities and challenges in developing FMNR in Myanmar?

   4. What should WWF Myanmar’s goals be for FMNR in Myanmar, considering
         our large-scale - long-term aspirations, and taking into account (1), (2) & (3)?

5. What key hurdles are foreseen, towards WWF Myanmar achieving the goals
        determined in (4)?
