Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park at Pathein University’s dedicated planting area can be reached by car from Yangon (estimated 5 hours by car) and is 8 miles up north of Chaung-Thar beach. This area was densely covered with mangrove forest four decades ago. Due to production of charcoal and other activities, no trees have been left unaffected by human activity.

An additional important goal of the Climate Park concept is sustainable community development benefiting the coastal population in adaptation to Global Warming, and mitigation. In order to keep the present amount of carbon in the soil in the planting area from oxidation, there is a need for new plants to make a natural cover. This will maintain the large amount of carbon in the soil. Restoration on this land will capture additional carbon by planting, as well as securing the ......

Area survey has been carried out for species diversity index, species richness, species evenness, and physico-chemical parameters of the environment. The two last surveys in April and May was to identify bare-land areas of pilot scale mangrove re-plantation for 42,000 mangrove saplings as the first step towards a full scale restoration process of the Pathein University park. ...........
