Ecosystem Under Threat Inle Lake in Myanmar

Ecosystem Under Threat Inle Lake in Myanmar

Deutsche Welle (Aug. 5, 2013) — Inle Lake is the second-largest freshwater lake in Myanmar and home to the Inthe people. But the lake's ecosystem is now under threat through overfishing, deforestation, pollution and silting. Climate change is also having an impact. In 2010, extremely low water levels in the lake cut off access to the Hpaung Daw U Pagoda. That served as a wake-up call for local residents. The United Nations now supports a program promoting sustainable fishing, organic farming and raising awareness of conservation issues. Part of the initiative has been the introduction of a no-fish zone in the lake.
