About the Project
Inle lake is experiencing environmental degradation from the combined effects of unsustainable resource use, increasing population pressures, climate variability and rapid tourism development. The native flora and fauna are endangered by exotic invasive species and the quality of water, which used to be safe for consumption, is now contaminated and has become a source of serious health problems for the local population. Without coordinated and effective management of the watershed, the adverse environmental, social and economic impacts will continue to impact on Inle Lake and its surrounding communities.
UNDP in partnership with Norway, will support the Inle Lake Management Authority (ILMA) efforts to address these adverse environmental, social and economic impacts by providing technical and financial assistance to further enhance the management of the Inle Lake watershed.
