Myanmar: Utilization of the forest's pantry
BRIEF NEWS: As something new, Mission East's partners are now engaging in exploiting Myanmar's forests in ways other than logging for timber.
They inspire the local population to pick fruits and nuts, grow vegetables, catch fish and game, find medicinal plants and extract resin and fiber from bamboo and other grasses. The efforts are part of the sustainable use of their environment to increase their food security and nutrition. The local partners have also participated in several courses to ensure that sustainable agriculture projects reach their goals.
