Evaluations and Research

In the Dry Zone of Myanmar, Mercy Corps assessed the vulnerability of farming communities to variable and shifting environmental conditions, a disabling governance and policy environment, and inefficient agricultural markets, in part using a new analytical tool it developed based on TANGO International’s 2012 Enhancing Resilience to Food Security Shocks in Africa discussion paper. To share assessment findings, Mercy Corps developed a case study document and held a webinar. Mercy Corps also developed Food Security Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment Guidance to provide guidance for implementing a regional-scale food security-focused vulnerability and capacity assessment, an integrated process for identifying and prioritizing shocks and stresses and understanding capacities to absorb, adapt, and transform when faced with them.
