We are currently looking for a Research Manager to support our team in Myanmar, based in Yangon, Myanmar.

Ongoing conflict continues to trigger displacement with more than 1.9 million people remaining displaced nationwide as of August 2023.  Simultaneously, the operational space for humanitarian actors is increasingly restricted, limiting access to vulnerable populations in need. Further to this, inflation continues to drive rising costs of basic commodities contributing to a shortfall in funding needed to support people in need. Further to this, the resulting economic crisis comprised of inflation, depreciation of the Myanmar Kyat (MMK) against the United States Dollar (USD) of around 40% since 1 February 2021, as well as a liquidity crisis/low supply of bank notes and closure of banks have resulted in rising food and other commodity prices, making it harder for people, to buy what they need with limited cash that they have.

The REACH team – based between Yangon and Bangkok – has been supporting the humanitarian response in Myanmar since 2022 through the implementation of the first Multi-Sector Needs Assessment (MSNA) and Humanitarian Situation Monitoring (HSM) pilot. Given the challenging and dynamic context in Myanmar, REACH is continuing to explore new and innovative ways to effectively inform the humanitarian response.
