Voices of the Forest: Myanmar
A Family's Aspirations

This is a beautiful, short story about how a mother's best hopes for her daughters' educations and future are derailed when her husband dies and her access to the forest—and its products—is diminished.

In Myanmar (Burma), forests have declined by 50% in the past 20 years. Although women are the primary users of the forest, they do not have control over the forests' resources and their rights have not been recognized by governing authorities. Community forestry throughout Southeast Asia, as well as other parts of the world, has show that Community Forests have the potential to improve people's livelihoods—especially women's—while reducing deforestation. To ensure a sustainable future for both forests and people, Community Forest advocates in Myanmar are working to strengthen community involvement in forested landscapes; implement land policies that address the aspirations of local people; and develop the capacities of forestry institutions to enhance people's livelihoods.
