Livelihoods and Food Security Trust (LIFT) Fund cover
Description The Livelihoods and Food Security Trust Fund (LIFT) is a multi-donor fund established in 2010 to improve the lives and prospects of smallholder farmers and landless people in rural Myanmar. LIFT is working to ensure that Myanmar’s rural economic transformation is inclusive.

Our activities lead to improved food security, and we help people to cope better with shocks and setbacks. We promote agricultural commercialisation, climate smart agriculture, financial inclusion, business and skills development, and targeted nutrition support for mothers and children. We fund a migration window to make migration safer, and to connect workers to new economic opportunities and jobs. We use evidence to encourage greater public and private funding, and to inform the development of rural policies that will improve the lives of poor people.

Our donors are Australia, Denmark, the European Union, France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. From the private sector, the Mitsubishi Corporation is a donor. LIFT is managed by UNOPS, who administers the funds and provide oversight and monitoring.

So far, LIFT has reached over seven million people, or roughly twenty per cent of Myanmar's rural population, and is active in over two-thirds of the country's townships.
