Myanmar plantation mapping

Rubber and palm oil plantations in  Dawna Tenasserim Landscape.

The Dawna Tenasserim Landscape covers Kayin and Mon States, and Tanintharyi Region in Myanmar. The area harbours one of the last large intact forest landscapes in the region, which hosts a large number of ethnic groups, and a wide variety of endangered wildlife such as elephants and tigers. The region is experiencing numerous threats including rapid increase in agricultural land use and associated deforestation, notably for rubber and palm oil, road and infrastructure development, and logging resulting in habitat degradation and fragmentation. The Dawna Tenasserim plantation portal shows areas with cropland, rubber, palmoil for 2017 and 2018.
