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. Accordingly, the development objective of this project is to contribute to sustainable forest management of Bago Yoma Region to improve the provision of environmental services and reduce GHG emissions from deforestation and degradation and enhancement of carbon stocks. The specific objective of the project is to strengthen capacity of the Ministry of Forestry in REDD-plus initiatives. The expected outputs are (i) REDD-plus national strategies prepared, (ii) Institutional setting for capacity building on REDD-plus strengthened and (iii) Capacity to conduct MRV of carbon stock built.
