Myanmar to take part in Hamalia mountain range conservation project

hamaliyaMYANMAR will participate in a Hamalia mountain range conservation programme organised by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), according to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation.
As a member country, Myanmar has been invited by the ICIMOD to work together in implementing the programme with Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, China and Bhutan. The preservation works will begin in 2018 under the five-year plan.
The new scheme will cover promotion of socio-economic status of mountain people, development of research and prevention of possible natural disasters caused by melting ice.
The Hamalia mountain range, which is the highest in South Asia, is famous for its unique natural beauty, eye soothing waterfalls, varieties of medicinal plants, different species of birds, reptiles, and wild animals.
The ICIMOD is a regional intergovernmental learning and knowledge sharing centre serving the eight regional member countries of the Hindu Kush Himalayas—Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Pakistan – and based in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Negotiations were made between the ministry and the ICIMOD earlier this month to promote collaboration in conducting research, eco-tourism development and disaster management.—200
