In view of the importance of the Myanmar forestry sector in enhancing national socio-economic development, and ensuring ecological balance and environmental stability, the Myanmar Forest Policy has been formulated in a holistic and balanced manner within the overall context of the environment and sustainable development taking full cognizance of the forestry principles adopted at the United Nations Conference on Environment Development (UNCED), 1992.
The Policy has identified the following six imperatives:
  • Protection of soil, water, wildlife, biodiversity and environment
  • Sustainability of forest resources to ensure perpetual supply of both tangible and intangible benefits accrued from the forests for the present and future generations
  • Basic Needs of the people for fuel, shelter, food and recreation
  • Efficiency to harness in the socio-environmentally friendly manner, the full economic potential of the forest resources
  • Participation of the people in the conservation and utilization of the forests; and
  • Public Awareness about the vital role of the forests in the well being and socio-economic development of the nation.
