Community forest business in Myanmar: Pathway to peace and prosperity?

Duncan Macqueen


This report summarises a short consultancy mission to Myanmar from 10-18 December 2015 to provide inputs to Pyoe Pin’s programme of work on a market led approach to community forestry. Over the past two years there have been significant changes, both in the forest sector where exposés of illegal logging have gone hand in hand with growing momentum behind community forestry, and in the political landscape generally, with a landslide victory by the National League for Democracy. The main thrust of recommendations within this report is to try and ensure that within that dynamic context, community forestry can be seen as an important platform for building peace and achieving a peace dividend in the wake of a long-hoped for peace agreement.
