Myanmar continues to experience multiple shocks, both natural and human-induced. The overall humanitarian situation in Myanmar has continued to deteriorate throughout 2022 due to a combination of insecurity, Covid-19 and economic fragility. February 2021 witnessed a military takeover resulting in an escalation in violence, displacement, needs and protection risks. This has severely limited people’s access to livelihoods and essential services, increased needs and vulnerabilities, and contributed to an increase in negative coping mechanisms.
NRC responds to the diverse needs faced by populations in Myanmar through the delivery of integrated programming and advocacy to ensure that conflict and displacement-affected communities can meet their needs and exercise their rights. NRC works with a range of different local and international partners to deliver a multi-faceted response that includes emergency response to rapid onset needs, providing essential services to internally displaced people in protracted displacement, and contributing to pathways to durable solutions.
