Consultation on wild resources and livelihoods in the Ayeyarwady Basin

Field consultations on the role of wild resources in people’s livelihoods were conducted in the Ayeyarwady Basin from the delta in the south to Putao in the north of Myanmar. Interviews and group discussions with local people, key government, and non-government stakeholders in 14 districts provided insights into the status and trends of wild resources and their management. This report is part of the The Ayeyarwady State of the Basin Assessment (SOBA) project. SOBA is an integrated environmental, social and economic analysis of past and present condition and trends in water and water related resources in the Ayeyarwady basin. It is designed to inform readers with an interest in natural resources sustainability in the Ayeyarwady Basin. It may be read as a reference document or as a resource of information to guide policy and planning decision-making.
