Myanmar continues to have significant Internally Displaced Person (IDP) populations, some of which result from long-term displacement and escalation of conflict. The current conflict situation is triggering dire needs that are multi-sectoral and spanning geographically throughout Southern Shan, Kayah and Kayin States of Myanmar and in border areas in Thailand. The EU-funded programme, Support to displaced Myanmar populations along the Thai-Myanmar Border, aims to provide support to displaced Myanmar populations in these regions. The key objectives of the programme are to increase the resilience and self-reliance of both displaced populations and host communities in the areas bordering Thailand and, if conditions allow, to prepare for the IDPs to return or relocate.
