Myanmar Opium Farmers Forum (MOFF)

The Myanmar Opium Farmers Forum (MOFF) was founded in 2013 shortly after the First Southeast Asia Opium Farmers Forum was held in Yangon in July 2013. The main purpose of the MOFF is to provide space for individuals and communities involved in opium production to share their experiences and concerns related to supply reduction policies (such as forced eradication), as well as to propose alternative policy options which respect the rights of local communities. The MOFF, which is comprised of representatives from Kayah, Kayan, Shan, Pa-O, and Kachin opium farming communities, organises annual meetings to discuss drug policy developments in the region.
