The Experience at a Glance

Project Title

Water For Agriculture, Thailand

Synopsis/Summary

While Thailand possesses abundant water resources, growing demand coupled with pollution puts an increasing pressure on these resources. For many rural communities, cultivation has been the main source of livelihood and survival. Although the significant expansion of agriculture has contributed to ensuring food security and reducing poverty in Thailand, it has caused significant deforestation and widespread watershed degredation. While industry has become the major source of

GDP, toxic wastes have polluted surface and groundwater supplies and damaged aquatic ecosystems. As a country that has achieved most of the MDGs, effective systems for conserving and protecting natural resources have become central to national development projects.
