Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Thailand’s major economy relies on agriculture and it is expected to be seriously affected by the adverse impacts of climate change due to the high sensitivity of agriculture on climatic variables including water resources. Studies indicate that among Southeast Asia, Thailand has the highest per capita water use and 94% to total water use is accounted for agricultural sector. The vulnerability of freshwater resources attributed to climate change is undoubtedly negligible in the region, since the development of the region depends on water resources. Moreover, the observed changes in water regime driven by climatic factors have not only affected agriculture [3, 4] but also the energy production in past decades.
