Myanmar ProfileBurma Profile
Agroconversion is regarded as the leading cause of Myanmar's deforestation process (Conservation International, undated). In particular, there has been a strong increase in interest in agriculture recently; since July 2013, Forest Trends has announced that since March 2012, 1.4 million hectares have been leased (Woods 2013). Two of the most important hot spots for new agrarian plantations are also two of the most wooded parts of the country:
The Kachin State (a destination for bio-fuel crops and caoutchouc plantations) and Tanintharyi region (mainly palm oils and natural caoutchouc investments) (ibid.). According to the Global Witness survey, more than 2.1 million hectares of farmland have been rented to farms for development since 2013. More than a fourth of this area was expanded into natural caoutchouc estates by 2015 (Global Witness 2015).
A Global Witness survey released in 2015 found that in North Shan State, Myanmar's army had worked with community government and corporations to seize rustic lands. It was then assigned to privately owned businesses and policymakers who built natural caoutchouc estates (Global Witness 2015).
