Abstract

The “Capitalising Human Mobility for Poverty Alleviation and Inclusive Development for Myanmar”(CHIME) examined the relationship between labour migration, poverty and development in four areas in Myanmar: Ayeyarwardy Region, Mandalay Region, Rakhine State and Shan State. CHIME employed a mixed-methods design, including a quantitative household survey and qualitative in-depth interviews, collected in two rounds in 2017. The quantitative samples were representative for Ayeyarwady and Mandalay regions. The study cannot and does claim to be representative of Rakhine and Shan States due to various limitations to accessing some of the villages.2
The CHIME project was implemented by a consortium composed of the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, the University of Sussex, Metta Development Foundation, and the International Organization for Migration (IOM). Financial support was provided by the Livelihoods and Food Security Fund (LIFT).
