Myanmar Country Environmental Analysis – Sustainability, Peace, and Prosperity : Forests, Fisheries, and Environmental Management (English)

The work examines the state of CF (community forestry) and community forest enterprises (CFE) in Myanmar, assessing their impacts, exploring the challenges to and opportunities for their upscaling, and from these putting forward a series of recommendations to ensure that the program sustainably delivers for forest communities as well as Myanmar as a whole. The main findings include : strong legal foundations provide significant opportunities to increase the impact of CF and CFE, significant interest and goodwill for CF and CFE among relevant stakeholders further underlines these opportunities, and from an economic perspective, CF and CFE have the potential for significant returns at community to national levels; there are already notable examples of this potential leading to results. A great deal of CF in 2019 is about its potential. There is a strong legal foundation, a growing area of forests under community management, a substantial amount of goodwill, and a growing pool of skilled and knowledgeable champions ready to pass on their learning and prospective for significant economic, environmental, and social returns based on these foundations. However, further investment is required to get over the threshold from potential to tangible and sustainable impacts.
