The project focuses on proper land management and pays particular attention to the protection of biodiversity in the National Marine Park of Lampi (PNML), Myeik archipelago, area of great environmental and cultural value. Currently, three main factors negatively affect such territory: poor land management, an exponential growth of the local population not coupled with a parallel development of public services, and the lack of diversification of the local economy, at present centered on fishing. In addition, increased competition is threatening local fishermen and causing an alarming degradation of marine and coastal resources. In order to improve this situation, OIKOS is offering specific training courses for the staff of the national park and other local actors, sensitising schools and communities through environmental education campaigns, launching an integrated system of water and waste management in three villages within the park and initiating ecotourism initiatives to stimulate the local economy. read more close
