About Thai Climate

Thai Climate delivers the latest news and views on the Kingdom’s response to global warming. Using laymen's terms and a journalistic approach, Thai Climate aims to improve the understanding of, and heighten interest in, the varied issues surrounding climate change in Thailand. Most importantly, Thai Climate hopes to stimulate more vocal and active participation in meeting the challenges posed by global warming in Thailand.

Some of the principal topics discussed on Thai Climate include:

  • What Thai scientist and modelers are telling us about weather changes and sea level rise in Thailand.
  • Anticipated costs of global warming and to whom.
  • Local and national policy responses to existing and anticipated climate change impacts.
  • Specific challenges faced by Bangkok’s geography and population.
  • Rural impacts, especially to the country’s extensive agricultural sector.
  • Future industrialization and energy use under a new climate paradigm.
  • International cooperation and partnerships to help improve Thailand’s and the world’s response to global warming.

In tracking issues, Thai Climate pays particular attention to those leaders who are helping to move things forward and those who may be holding Thailand back. Also watched closely is the status of promised policies, and the results that have, or have not, been delivered.
