Since March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic, impacts of the military takeover, and global disruptions have reversed development gains for Myanmar that begun with the reform process started in 2011. In 2022 about 40 percent of the population is estimated to be living below the national poverty line, undoing a decade of progress in poverty reduction. The outlook beyond 2022 continues to test the resilience of the Myanmar people, with household incomes declining and coping mechanisms against food insecurity and poverty increasing amidst ongoing internal conflict.
The World Bank Myanmar Monitoring Platform focuses on analytical activities that track the impacts of internal and external disruptions on Myanmar’s development.
