Useful Species

Reviewing the list of useful species to be included in the inventory of the Nam Sa Bi Village Management Area (see Nam Sa Bi VMA). Timber trees, rattans, bamboos, thatch palms, and medicinal plants. Daw Myint Myint Oo (WCS Myanmar Program) leads the discussion. [NOTE: There were about 15 villagers in the room helping us put the list together].


Participatory forest inventories only work if there is real collaboration between all parties. As shown above, Myint Myint Oo (WCS) records the data (flawlessly) while Myint Thein (Forest Department) takes a compass bearing (flawlessly, see Nam Sa Bi VMA). Collaboration doesn't get any better than this (thx, guys). [NOTE: The hats say it all].
