Myanmar's Ayeyarwady Delta supports an ethno-cultural landscape in which otherwise globally threatened wetland biodiversity has thrived alongside traditional rice agriculture for centuries. This landscape is threatened by the spread of intensive industrial agriculture and aquaculture, negatively impacting both local people’s livelihoods, and important and iconic wildlife. This project will benefit globally important biodiversity, and support rural farming communities, by linking international rice markets to local sustainable production and applying the new global standards developed by the Sustainable Rice Platform.
