Capacity for monitoring Thailand's river basins strengthened

Posted: 2012-11-16

GWP Thailand has been working to strengthen stakeholders' capacity in monitoring IWRM in critical river basins suffering from resource overuse. 

GWP Thailand organised training workshops on data collection in smallscale ecosystems and geographic information systems for risk mapping. Participants included the River Basin Committee (RBC) and local community members. For 2012, the river basins selected were the Lower Ping basin and the Huai Luang basin (northern Thailand) and the Pattanee basin (southern Thailand).

These activities strengthened the RBC's capacity in data collection and problem identification and the participation and collaboration among different stakeholders. Local stakeholders continue to work together with the RBC in these river basins. The availability of relevant information will enable appropriate responses to be made in the face of climate change.
