Myanmar Forest Restoration, Development and Investment Project –FREDIP — will be implemented with the World Bank’s loan, according to the Forest Department, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation.
At present, the Forest Department has drawn FREDIP plan, which will be carried out with the World Bank’s aid.

FREDIP aims to develop sustainable forest management and use it to improve the lives of its communities. The project will be carried out in Nay Pyi Taw Union Territory and five regions–Ayeyawady, Bago, Magway, Mandalay and Sagaing.
The project will be implemented in four phases: production forests; community-owned forestry for livelihoods; forest protection and strengthening organization and project management.
As part of the project preparation process, the department is looking for the feedback and suggestions from the stakeholders for the Environmental and Social Management Framework-ESMF, Environmental and Social Commitment Plan-ESCP, Social Assessment and Stakeholder Engagement Plan-SEP. Arrangements are being formulated to reduce the environmental and social impacts of the project. — Thiri
