Burma is full of possibilities. That Southeast Asian land comes from 50 years of mating. One of the main issues for the land now is how to reconcile economic development and nature protection. As Myanmar protects its forest and streams - which humans and animals, among them sharks, bulls, elephants and irawaddy sharks, depend on to live - while creating new streets, building new shops and more?
But how can it free its populace from destitution without damaging the wealth of its own physical resource? Some of the responses are in new evaluations of the country's physical resource and the "services" they offer - forest that take up coal and provides habitats for threatened wild animals, streams that are a spring of potable waters, mangrove trees that help to conserve seaside populations, and much more.
WWF hopes that policy leaders across the nation will use the evaluations to foster an early step towards a clean bill of health - an early step towards integrating the sustainability of the use of nature assets into the country's new economic, political, energy, agricultural, urban, land use, FDI and more sector.
The Myanmar authorities, supported by the WWF, are already working on a scheme to assess how different evolutionary sceneries are changing the country's physical assets. This is crucial as Myanmar is home to three of the most primordial watercourses on earth (Irrawaddy, Salween and Mekong) and its forest is among the most vast and unspoilt in Southeast Asia.
It is based on WWF's expertise in the evaluation of nature assets in other parts of the globe and in Myanmar. The WWF and its partner are using the evaluations to stress the need to integrate eco-system support into the design of a main highway in the Tanintharyi district of Myanmar, which will halve the biggest unspoilt forests in Southeast Asia and one of the biggest tigers in Asia.
WWF has been helping the Philippines to become a role-model of sustainable developement since it opened its Myanmar offices a year ago. For example, WWF has educated Myanmar officials on how to use and use the tools provided by the project Better Investment. Find out more about the advantages of Myanmar's countryside.
