Abstract

The Rural Economy and Agriculture Dry Zone Survey (READZ) community survey was conducted in mid-2017 in 300 villages in 14 townships across Mandalay, Sagaing, and Magway. These regions are located in Myanmar’s Central Dry Zone - one of the country’s most important agricultural zones. The survey was designed to facilitate analysis of recent changes in the rural economy of the Dry Zone. Data was collected through group interviews conducted with knowledgeable long term residents in each of the communities surveyed. The survey collected data on recent changes in physical and social infrastructure, transport and mobility, irrigation access, cropping patterns, agricultural mechanization and labor costs, numbers of off-farm enterprises, and access to credit. Key findings are summarized below.
