The country's top water resources agency is considering applying environmental measures in water management strategy to cope with climate change in keeping with the agenda of a recent UN meeting.

 

Secretary-general of the Office of the National Water Resources (ONWR), Dr Somkiat Prajamwong, said on Thursday after attending the 25th United Nations Climate Change conference in Madrid that many countries had shown their intention to fight climate change.

 

“The ONWR will set the policy and action plan with the Office of National Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning (ONEP) and Deutsche Gesellschaftfür Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), starting in the Yom and Sakae Krang Rivers in order to apply environmental measures in water management,” he said.

 

“In addition, the Office will cooperate with over 40 water-related authorities to prepare a training course to create awareness on water management and the impacts of global warming for officers in order to increase their potential to adapt to climate change.”

 

He added that the ONWR and ONEP have discussed preparing a policy brief to support this measure, which is also in accordance with the 20-year Master Plan on Water Resource Management.

 

“The Office will join hands with GIZ to publish an Ecosystem based Adaptation plan, which is an environmental measure to deal with global warming,” he added.

Unless they have figured out some way to control the Sun and the Earth's relation to it they will have next to no influence on climate change.

"So you are saying we have to store the water until we need it. Is that right?"

True but they are doing their best to destroy the environment. The air is already unhealthy to breath😣 the seas are polluted by Thai fishermen, garbage is sprewn throughout the land by one and all and they are making as much noise as humanly possible.

Which will mean zip when those Chinese and Laos dams turn off the tap.
