Integrating climate and development in Thailand
The project includes national and regional analysis to help Thailand integrate climate and development action.
There is international consensus that sustainable development and economic growth are among the highest priorities in recently developed and developing countries. The consensus over the development aspirations of developing countries including the UNFCCC, the Rio Declaration, Agenda 21, and most recently, the Bali Action Plan.
However, there is little concrete analysis to guide countries on how to integrate climate policies into their development plans. The proposed programme will attempt to fill this gap by combining international comparative synthesis with selected national studies.
The project identifies climate strategies and policies that are consistent with sustainable development. By providing information and analysis on potential areas of disagreement between countries and regions, the project team will help to reduce the differences between them.
The project forms part of a global initiative that includes Bangladesh, Chile, Kenya, Pakistan, Senegal and Vietnam.
