Title: Salween Peace Park - A vision for an indigenous Karen landscape of human-nature harmony in southeast Myanmar
Date of publication: 16 August 2017
Description/subject: "Myanmar is tentatively emerging from military rule and civil war. Embracing this opportunity, Salween Peace Park proponents argue for a sustainable alternative to megadams, strip mines, and top-down protected areas like national parks, all of which require the colonization of indigenous land.

Title: The Salween Peace Park : A Place for All Living Things to share Peacefully (Video)
Date of publication: 07 August 2017
Description/subject: ""A vision for an indigenous Karen landscape of human-nature harmony in southeast Myanmar/Burma" Burmese subtitle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mo8ITaWqLVg&t=1s On today, 3 March 2017, to celebrate World Wildlife Day, the Karen Environmental and Social Action Network (KESAN) is pleased to release a short video introducing the Salween Peace Park, an indigenous-managed reserve established to preserve Karen cultural heritage and the wildlife and nature of the Salween River basin. In the mountainous, war-torn Mutraw District of Karen State, indigenous Karen communities are working to build a new future for themselves. Local communities, KESAN and the Karen National Union lead this innovative undertaking to demonstrate how indigenous Karen people can sustainably manage their lands and forests, as well as protect endangered species like the tiger and pangolin. Throughout the 5,400 Square Kilometer Peace Park, there are already three wildlife sanctuaries and over twenty community forests - proof that alternative, community-based sustainable development and conservation initiatives can coexist. The Salween Peace Park is a grassroots, people-centered alternative to plans for destructive mega-dams and mining in the Salween River basin, and represents indigenous self-determination and community protection of natural and cultural heritage in action..."
