Myanmar to Launch Biodiversity Conservation Project in Chindwin River

Myanmar has planned to launch a biodiversity and ecosystem services project in three townships along the country's Chindwin River Basin starting April 1, 2018, according to the official Global New Light of Myanmar report. The research programme will be conducted in 15 villages in Khamti, Kalewa, and Chaung U townships which are the main areas of biodiversity conservation. The project of mainstream biodiversity and ecosystem services in the Chindwin River Basin is aimed at building the capacity of civil society and government agencies in assessing potential impact of development and climate change and raising awareness of biodiversity conservation. Researchers will monitor the value of biodiversity and observe the environmental impact and livelihood problems in the communities.
