After we've done the household interviews and run the inventory transects, we hold a village meeting to share what we found out, i.e. how much of different types of resources they use and how much is still in the forest. Image above shows Kyaw Zay Ya from the WCS Myanmar Program indicating where they transects we sampled were located.

Basic finding from our fieldwork in Tikon: small village demand (because of few households), enormous supply (because of large forest area). Issue now is what best to do so that the community doesn't lose access to the forest after stewarding it so well for 100 years.  Stay tuned.
