Peatlands Assessment, December 2012
The peatland areas in Myanmar have not been adequately explored and identified, due to various reasons. In order to conserve its peatlands, existing peat areas would have to be confirmed first. To this end, a peat assessment survey was held in Shan State from 10 to 12 December 2012. The effort was held in cooperation with the Forest Resource Environment Development and Conservation Association (FREDA), which is the SEApeat project partner in Myanmar. 13 participants (1 from Vietnam, 2 from GEC Malaysia and 10 from Myanmar) took part in this exercise.
