The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation has designated the area of 1,689 acres in Pyinmana Township, Dekkhina District in Nay Pyi Taw, as “Protected Public Forest Part-3” as of 1 April 2022, under Notification No 64/2022 by exercising the authority conferred under Sub-section (e) of Section (6) of the Forest Law promulgated in September 2018.
The Protected Public Forest Part-3 is intended to conserve the watershed area of ​​the Nancho Hydropower Project and that of ​​the Paunglaung Hydropower Project, mitigate climate change, conserve biodiversity and ensure soil conservation.
The Nancho Protected Public Forest Part-3 is not only a place where many kinds of wood and valuable trees such as teak, ironwood, and gum-kino grow but also a habitat for wild animals such as wild boar, barking deer, sambar deer, monkey, goat antelope, rabbit, owl, eagle, pangolin, and cobra. It is necessary to manage forest resources systematically, and it is also a watershed area of the Paunglaung Dam. Thus, the area is declared a protected public forest.— Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation
