Myanmar Migration in a Time of Transformation
Mateusz Filipski, Ben Belton, Sithu Kyaw, and Eaindra Theint Thu

Workshop on Modern Food System Development in Myanmar
Yangon, Myanmar, February 22, 2018

RESULTS
Large migration flows:

  • All income levels, all genders
  • Internationally and nationally
  • Rural-urban and rural-rural

CONSEQUENCES

  • It creates labor shortages and pushes up rural wages
  • Farms are mechanizing to compensate
  • Remittances are fueling rural consumption and construction

Caveat: we only studied three areas, not nationally representative
