The Pulses, People, Planet and Profit (P4) project will work with smallholder farmers and labourers in four townships in Yangon and Magway Regions (Thongwa, Kayan, Magway and Min Bu). The project, started in September 2017, will increase the incomes of 10,000 smallholder mungbean farmers, 20% of whom are landless female farm labourers. Pulses value chains, specifically for mungbeans, offer great potential to lift many Myanmar farmers and labourers out of poverty. The key objectives of the P4 project are to improve the enabling environment for the mungbean value chain in Myanmar by proposing policy and regulatory reforms; to increase the volume of mungbeans purchased by premium market buyers from farmers groups by enhancing access to support services on Good Agricultural Practices, Climate Smart Agriculture and collective marketing; and to increase the mungbean farmers productivity and quality of produce by enhancing access to support services and good quality mungbean seeds. ICCO Cooperation and the DaNa Facility, in collaboration with East West Seed (EWS) and Network Activities Group (NAG), have launched a 30-month UK Department for International Development (DFID)-funded project.

This project will increase the incomes of 10,000 smallholder mungbean farmers, 20% of whom are landless female farm labourers. Pulses value chains, specifically for mungbeans, offer great potential to lift many Myanmar farmers and labourers out of poverty.
