dc.description.abstract Although agriculture is the major subsistence livelihood, the harshness of climate conditions including low and unpredictable annual rainfall are most serious limiting factors for HteePuvillage. Nyaung U has the lowest annual rainfall among dry zones of Myanmar. Diversification and intensification are key elements in the climate smart agriculture (CSA) strategy. Many households have been introduced to three types of pulses (Lab Lab, Lima bean, and cowpea) which have local market potential. Future work will include enrichment planning of community forests with multiple use tree and grass species to serve as “banks” in case of long droughts. en
