Amidst these challenges, the new political development in Myanmar offers opportunities for political participation and improving natural resources governance.

The vision shall guide these stakeholders in sustainable development and land use planning. Productivity of small-holder farmers shall be improved through improvement of agricultural and agro- forestry practices, establishment of producer groups and access to markets and micro-finance schemes.
