ABSTRACT
The article reports that there is a hunger in Myanmar's central regions of Mandalay, Magway and Lower Sagaing, known as the "dry zone." The region is the home to a quarter of the country's 58 million people. It is stated that the hunger is pushing local people into hunger, malnutrition and debt. According to a 2014 survey by the World Food Programme, Save the Children, and the Ministry of Livestock, Fisheries and Rural Development, 18.5 percent of dry zone households face food insecurity.
