ADVANCING CHANGES IN ASIA: MYANMAR IS A TREASURY OF TREASURES OF NATURE, CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND AN ENTHUSIASM FOR THE FUTURE". Myanmar's inhabitants are imagining a thoroughly contemporary, nature-loving way in a land of wonder of nature that is now exploring the outside environment. I travel with a WWF conservation group to the vast rainforests of the Tanintharyi region, along the south tails of Myanmar.
It is a booming period and this street construction marks the end of 50 years of insulation and restricted external investments. Just like the street itself, which opens up new perspectives with every turn, Myanmar moves into an exiting but unsafe area with many chances and challanges. While Myanmar looks to the past, WWF has used this opportunity to make the nation a role-playing example for sustainability.
Despite this enormous, costly and long-planned street undertaking, it seems that government authorities are concerned to preserve the country's enormous wealth of resources and at the same time make the land ready for the leap into the twenty-first millennium. TOURNAMENT - A young lumberjack and his bull appear from the woods of Tanintharyi. In Myanmar, tens of thousand of captured bulls like this one are used to gather tea.
As a life-long environmentalist with decade-long experiences around the globe, Newman is forced into the back seat of the SUV with Michelle Owen, Myanmar's WWF ecoprepare. In Tanintharyi, at least in the beginning, these endeavours will focus on the amazing biodiversity - among them threatened Indo-Chinese Tiger, Asiatic Elephant, Gibbon and Langur - and on the urgent need for protection, as one of the country's biggest new infrastructural project is underway.
Further upcountry, street teams push eastwards through this jagged scenery of roaring streams and mountain forests to the Thai frontier. When the new highway to Thailand is finished as scheduled, it will connect Dawei directly with Bangkok and accelerate Myanmar's accession with the nine other members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, ASEAN for short.
In more concrete terms, it will be a fast new human and trade road across Indochina to the Indian Ocean, bringing the area nearer to the South Asian and Middle Eastern market. "It is one of the richest areas in the world," says Owen, while the earthmoving machines move aside and let us through.
The WWF, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and the Green Economy Green Growth Association organized a workshop for Geospatial Analysis Education and Strategic Learning in Myanmar in 2013. Throughout the education and design processes, nine departments and over 50 individuals, among them the University' s Dean of Forestry, Dr. Myint Oo, have decided how these free open sources can best be used to promote the sustainable and resilient Myanmar's economy and population.
Trade in wild animals is a big problem in this part of the globe. Burma is an important conduit for the smuggling of tropical animals and animals in Southeast Asia and China. Here in the Tanintharyi, the effort to control illegal hunting will be dependent on building the confidence and cooperation of the people.
Only 15 min up the street, we leave at a dilapidated streethouse, where the owners serves a rotten smelly casserole. The increasing amount of street congestion, the owners notice, means that venison is becoming ever more scarce and the prices he is paying are rising. Indeed, WWF experience in other emerging economies such as Namibia and Nepal shows that the indigenous population plays a crucial part in the conservation of nature's resource when they are active in making them.
Myanmar's past is present everywhere - so much so that many still know the land under its former name Burma. Yangon, the country's biggest town and former capitol, has shiny offices and building cranes towering above colonial times' brittle houses and wars of antique highways. It seems that everywhere, humans and goods are on the way, stacked in pickups, which hold on to the roofs of the exhausting coaches.
There' s no better way to sense the heartbeat of a land than to head inland, and so we head for the side streets to the North, on a itinerary that runs parallel to the legendary Irrawaddy River. Scooter tow trailer with piles of piles of green undergrowth. "He is not sure what it means to develop according to the principles of sustainable agriculture, but he knows that his living is dependent on plenty of safe waters.
"I' m satisfied with our chairman and what he's doing for the nation's development," says one of them. Between 1990 and 2010, the country's total forestland area was reduced from more than 45% to less than 20%. "In order to have a leafy company, everyone should grow trees," announces a third.
It seems that the embassy is gaining ground, especially among Myanmar's younger generations, where it will be the most important in the coming years. Throughout Myanmar, street crews often coat their faces with classic threaka sunscreen pastes. After the first class she has been compelled to leave college, she is expecting a better tomorrow for her kids - a vision she feels has been made possible by Myanmar's opening to democracy.
When the long street approaches Bagan, we see a couple of girls working on broadening the street, shovelling newly cleft stones into cages and dragging them onto the street under building. It is another example of the advancement in redesigning a pastureland where small streets meander through evergreen, grassy mounds and wooded ox carts that still exceed the number of vehicles two to one.
"Like you, this street will attract more foreigners," says Ma Wai, 20, a young lady whose cheek is smeared with creamy Tanaka cream, often used for aesthetic beautification and protection of the suntan. Spreading along the length of the land and flowing into the Andaman Sea, the Irrawaddy River is becoming more and more muddy and clogged up by deforestation, farm degradation and other hazards.
Situated on its south foothills, the estuary is home to a system of mangroves that is gradually being transformed for the purposes of fish farming, agricultural and agricultural use. "This was another example of the country's basic link between flourishing animal life and people' s well-being," says Rosalind Becker, the programme officer of the Foundation for Nature Protection and Med.
" He' s been told that Myanmar still has unexplored animal populations and is hoping that the future tourism will respect this secret as much as today. Touristy after touristy takes pictures and video, then immediately send the pictures to the bigger wide canvas. After our homecoming to Yangon, Mya Nwe, the youngest member of the WWF US delegation, gives an extra reason to believe in the "new Myanmar".
Nwe's way of reflecting on the state' s bright side corresponds to the confidence of the other WWF people. As Michelle Owens put it well, she meandered across the rain-swollen Tenasserim River. She appreciated the country's huge freshwater resources, unimpeded streams and the environmental benefits of the forest, such as habitats for threatened animals and the storage of Carbons.
That' s why WWF is so heavily involved in Myanmar, Carter Roberts added. "We work to help churches and local government officials keep the country's natural, animal and cultural heritage alive to save their hearts and souls. "Myanmar today rests on two realms - the old and the new, the old and the thoroughly new.
It is this excitement that makes this land so irresistible, so pressing and so hopeful. Between 1973 and 2009, Myanmar was depleted of about 24 per cent of its forested area. Big coherent woodlands will be preserved throughout the whole nation, but if grass-roots business plans do not work, logging together with the country's expanding road system (including the planned Dawei-Bangkok highway) could speed up the logging tendency.
As well as promoting biological diversity, unspoilt fluvial ecosystems offer countless advantages for people: fishing, watering, abundant agricultural sediment and fresh water refreshment for inshore fishing and fish farming. Whilst hydroelectric power could supply renewables for mankind's needs while minimising the impact on the course of the dam.
From a historical point of view, the habitats of bulls and bulls stretched over almost the whole area. Today the mountains are highly fractured, while only two strongholds still contain sharply separated animals - one in the far northern part, the other in the Tanintharyi area of Myanmar on the east coast of Thailand. Myanmar has been largely insulated from much of the rest of the planet for years.
The WWF published a study on Myanmar's and the Mekong region's ecosystem in 2013: "We agree on some important figures for the country's Nature rich. "Dawei's planned harbour and street and the associated railway and electricity pipelines will open up new commercial possibilities while providing accessibility for isolated towns.
However, the street could be disastrous, according to where it leads. We' re proud to be working with WWF to evaluate the possible impacts of the roads on forest, tiger and countryside populations - and with WWF, The Wildlife Conservation Society and Flora and Fauna International to evaluate the potentials of other ways of developing throughout the country.
Pythagurneyi is indigenous to Myanmar and Thailand. Once visited the riverbeds of Myanmar, but this threatened species is now considered to have died out. The number of Gyps in Myanmar is decreasing due to the consumption of drug-treated carcases and the dwindling numbers of game. On June 29, 2012, Ambassador Derek J. Mitchell was re-elected as US Ambassador to the Republic of Burma by the United States Senate.
I had the honour of taking part in a new era in US-Burma relationships during my first year as US Ambassador. Burma was one of the first to be recognised by the United States after gaining British sovereignty in 1948. The United States has normalised US Diplomatic ties, replaced diplomats and considerably relaxed US embargoes on the economy in reaction to the changes that have taken place in recent years.
There are great potential for partnerships and the United States looks forward to taking many chances in the years ahead to build strong and enduring relationships. Burma's population also seems to be keen to make up for the loss of time: taking the opportunity to get to know the best practice in a number of areas; developing their skills and know-how; and creating an open, free, dynamic and wealthy community for themselves and their family.
One of the central sources of Burma's strengths and challenges lie in its cultural and traditional richness and richness. It is this multitude of peoples and landscapes that makes the land so unique and has made its recent past so difficult. Yet the Myanmar tribe is deeply proud of its country's dramatic environment.
Myanmar is a land full of local cultural and cultural assets. While looking forward to an epoch of evolution and transformation, one gets the feeling that many people are afraid of loosing some of what has been handed down by future generation, essentially the core and spirit of the land, on the alter of develompen.
With Burma taking over the ASEAN presidency this year and holding its next parliamentary elections in 2015, the global picture is bright. United States is convinced of the persistence and resolve of the Burmese nation to establish a non-violent, just and affluent population. Whilst the challenges ahead are great, the United States, along with many others in the global fellowship, inside and outside the administration, stands ready now.
The United States' formal policies continue to be that "Burma" is the formal name of the nation, but in the course of conducting foreign diplomacy with the US administration, the United States uses the name "Myanmar". "For example, by using Myanmar during President Thein Sein's trip, we want to show our full appreciation and appreciation for his administration, which is following an aggressive reforms program.
