The Indo-Burma Wetland Outlook (IBWO) is the first synthesis of the status and trends for wetlands across the five countries of the region namely, Cambodia, Lao, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam.

Together with rain forest and coral reefs, wetlands are one of the most productive habitats in the world that plays an important role in water quality improvement, erosion control, flood reduce, surface and groundwater protection. However, due to overexploitation of natural resources, unsustainable agricultural practices, urbanization and rapid economic development, the Indo-Burma wetlands have been undergoing rapid loss and degradation.

The Outlook is the result of interviews, literature reviews, and knowledge from governments, Ramsar site managers, universities, civil society organisations and communities working and living in the region. It aims to bring together the latest data to understand the current and future situation of wetlands in Indo-Burma region.
