Summary Myanmar is one of the forest rich countries in the tropical region. Its forest has contributed to the provision of abundant and indirect benefits to local, regional and global communities especially in reducing Green House Gas (GHG) emissions and enhancing forest carbon stocks and environmental services. Toungoo District in Bago Yoma Region of Myanmar is approximately 1,064,939 ha and will be used as the project site. Implementation on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation and Enhancing Forest Carbon Stocks (REDD-plus) through sustainable forest management requires understanding and participation by all stakeholders. As concept and methodologies of REDD-plus are new to Myanmar, capacity building and awareness raising for all level of stakeholders are crucially important, and urgently needed.
