|Title:|| ||Indo-Burma Biodiversity Hotspot - Ecosystem Profile, 2011 Update
|Date of publication:|| ||June 2012|
|Description/subject:|| ||"...This document represents the ecosystem profile for the Indo-Burma Hotspot, which
comprises all non-marine parts of Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand and
Vietnam, plus parts of southern China. With its high levels of plant and animal
endemism, and limited remaining natural habitat, Indo-Burma ranks among the top 10
biodiversity hotspots for irreplaceability and the top five for threat. Indo-Burma holds
more people than any other hotspot, and its remaining natural ecosystems, already greatly
reduced in extent, are subject to intense and growing pressure from habitat loss,
degradation and fragmentation, and over-exploitation of natural resources...A total of 753 species outcomes, 509 site outcomes and 66 corridor outcomes were
defined for the hotspot. Among these, 151 species, 74 sites and four corridors were
prioritized for conservation investment. The priority species represent a significant
increase over the 67 identified in the original ecosystem profile. This can be attributed
largely to the inclusion, for the first time, of priority plant species, and the expansion of
the analysis to include Myanmar, home to a suite of species not found elsewhere in the

|Title:|| ||Principles for Improving Environmental Compliance and Enforcement in Asia
|Date of publication:|| ||2012|
|Description/subject:|| ||To assist AECEN Members and others in promoting improved environmental compliance and enforcement in Asia, AECEN has adopted a set of regional principles that are based on international law and national experiences in Asia, and worldwide. Based on a consultative process with Members and other experts, the principles reflect national experiences in Asia, and worldwide. In applying the principles, AECEN Members and other agencies develop courses of action based on their own legal and institutional frameworks, developmental policies and priorities, and available resources.".....
