Purpose: We wish to spend time together in Yangon and Naypyidaw in the Spring 2012 develop a project design to address these conservation and development challenges. To do this we need to for develop pragmatic and effective strategies and capacity-building approaches to implement the NBSAP in forest areas, in ways which both sustainably protect the biodiversity habitats as well as working towards food, livelihood security and cultural integrity for indigenous groups. The requested grant would fund travel costs for the partners to spend about one week together. In that time we would: ? Clarify and update our collective understanding of the local situation, ? Develop our concepts and plans for project work, ? Identify and liaise with other potential project partners ? Build rapport with stakeholders in the govt, conservation communities and indigenous rights groups. ? Explore opportunities for matched funding from other stakeholders and funding bodies
