MYA/Alternative Development and Establishment of Community Forests in South Shan

Description

Myanmar is one of the least developed countries and a fragile state. Project will support communities to replace opium poppy growing in South Shan, Myanmar to find income alternatives (i.e. coffee growing) and to establish community forests and reforest areas where opium poppy have been grown with detrimental environmental impact. On the other hand, the project supports peacebuilding in the local level by bringing different parties together to improve environmental condition and to end opium poppy growing. The project is implemented by UNODC. The duration of the project is three years and Finland's contribution three million euros.
