Goals

Sustainable use of forest resources plays an important role in Myanmar's economy. In recent decades, the forest area and forest biodiversity has markedly decreased. Ongoing NFI-NFMIS project, implemented by FAO and supported by the governments of Finland and Myanmar, will develop National Forest Monitoring and Information System. Luke will support NFI-NFMIS project by studying sampling design options, methodologies and compiling documents for Myanmar's National Forest Inventory.
