Figure 10.4: Threat from coastal development and marine based pollution and damage
Estimated threat from (a) coastal development (including threat from development to lakes on land)
to shallow shelf areas along Myanmar’s coastline and (b) marine based pollution and damage,
classified according to areas of medium (light green polygon) and high threat (dark green polygon).

reefs, classified according to areas of low (blue polygon), medium (orange polygon) and high threat
(red polygon). In all parts EEZ (broken line). Threats from marine‐based pollution and damage were
evaluated based on the size and volume of commercial shipping ports, size and volume of cruise ship
