Infographic: Protecting Natural Resources in Chiang Mai
Chiang Mai province in northern Thailand is rich in natural resources. It is a top tourist destination, has several national parks, and is home to various ethnic groups who have lived off the land for years. It is also home to the Mae Sa-Kog Ma Man and Biosphere Reserve, designated in 1977 by UNESCO. The reserve boasts a wide variety of flora and fauna and several key watersheds that provide fresh water to local communities.
USAID LEAF assists the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP), local governments, and communities to better manage and protect the natural resources of the Mae Sa-Kog Ma Man and Biosphere Reserve. USAID LEAF initiatives focused on a management plan for the reserve; capacity building; and a payment for ecosystem services (PES) mechanism.
