Since the formal cessation of military governance in 2011, Myanmar experiences a phase of socio-political and economic transition. Policy reforms are now underway, and the country is opening up to international actors and markets. In this context of change, our research expands current knowledge about the interface of livelihoods, agriculture and forestry in upland Myanmar. Using a mixed-methods approach, we analyse how rural livelihoods are currently interlinked with land and natural resources, assess factors that drive land-use and tree-cover dynamics, and explore new challenges and opportunities arising for small-scale farmers, in the agriculture and forestry sectors.
