Mushrooms for prosperity in Chin State

Mushrooms for prosperity in Chin State

A mushroom research and training programme in Myanmar is aiming to lift farmers out of poverty, improve their diets and slow outward migration.

Researchers from the Centre for Mountain Futures, a joint lab with World Agroforestry’s East and Central Asia Regional Programme and the Kunming Institute of Botany (KIB), recently facilitated a series of mushroom-cultivation training workshops in Chin State, Myanmar. The workshops emerged from an World Agroforestry and KIB project conducted in the Chin and Shan states in 2016: Agroforestry Alternatives to Shifting Cultivation.
