Our forests are home to communities and wildlife.
They are protection from climate change.
Providers of clean air and water.
But Myanmar has one of the highest deforestation rates in the world.
"Agricultural expansion is one of the biggest threats facing Myanmar’s wild landscapes."
“Roads are good news for development, but often have devastating impacts on nature.”
“Mining not only reduces forest cover, but also leads to long term consequences such as pollution and infrastructure development.”
Myanmar still has abundant, pristine forest cover. Together we can find the balance that allows Myanmar to develop whilst protecting this critical ecosystem.
"The Dawna Tenasserim Landscape is one of the most biodiverse regions in the world."
“Local communities heavily rely on the forests and rivers for their livelihoods.”
“Could Myanmar become the first country to produce sustainable rubber?”

"Electricity is like magic": a Q&A with Shoon So Oo
Shoon So Oo is the energy programme manager at WWF-Myanmar. He’s one of the people behind ‘The Renewable Energy Vision’ – one of the most ambitious programmes of its kind. The Vision aims for 100% renewable energy by 2050 for Myanmar. Shoon believes it can happen, and he’s convinced that what the energy programme does is as close to magic as you’ll get in the real world.
All over the world there are ordinary people doing extraordinary things for our planet.
