Project Summary:
This project will protect Myanmar’s biodiversity, support ethnic peace and prevent human-elephant conflict (HEC) due to current and predicted land-use changes from expanding commercial exploitation, agrarian livelihoods and resettlement of vulnerable refugees lacking knowledge of wildlife. Local participatory land management and HEC mitigation will reach at least 12,300 families. Land is managed sustainably and incorporates local knowledge and technical expertise, in 5 areas of high biodiversity and elephant conflict in Myanmar, anticipating human migration and serving as national examples.
