Ecosystem under Threat - Inle Lake in Myanmar

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. Global 3000 home page: http://www.dw.de/program/global-3000/s-11487-9798
