HILIFE Partnership Building and Programme Monitoring Trip to Putao, Mynamar

The Landscape Initiative for the Far Eastern Himalayas (HILIFE) aims to promote regional collaboration among China, India, and Myanmar to conserve and develop a transboundary landscape that extends from the Namdapha National Park of India in the west to the Salween River Watershed in the east, with northern Myanmar in between. One of the major threats to the rich biodiversity and forest resources of northern Myanmar is the lack of alternative energy technology. Under the One Belt One Road, the Chinese government has increased its technical support to neighboring countries, and there is potential for HILIFE partners in China and Myanmar to apply for Chinese funding to promote energy technology development in Myanmar. To strengthen cooperation between partners in China and Myanmar, HILIFE, with the approval and support of the Forest Department of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation of Myanmar, has organized a visit for three experts from the Chengdu Institute of Biology and Kunming Institute of Botany to the Putao area of Myanmar.
