REPORT: A Better Road to Dawei

Posted on
17 June 2015
Given that the proposed Dawei Industrial Development project and associated road to Thailand have been approved and are likely to be built in the coming years, WWF has significant concerns about the potential impacts on the globally important biodiversity of the Tanintharyi Region, including tiger habitat, dense forests, species-rich rivers and marine resources, which are a critical resource for local communities.

The Dawei Project cannot avoid impacting the environment and communities in the region, but WWF believes that those impacts must be minimized by careful planning and use of mitigation measures throughout the process, from design to development to completion and beyond.
  • Section 1 Why address ecosystem services and wildlife in the development of the Dawei road?
  • Section 2 What do assessments and future scenarios tell us about ecosystem services in Tanintharyi?
  • Section 3 Where can possible technical solutions be located and what measures should be implemented?
