Risk-NAP-Project: Strengthening Adaptive Spatial Planning in Thailand

Institute of Spatial and Regional Planning (IREUS)

The goals of the project Strengthening Adaptive Spatial Planning in Thailand are:

  1. to exchange knowledge with spatial planners in Thailand about the relationship between spatial planning, climate change adaptation and resilience building, and
  2. to expand the capacities of planners to systematically analyse information about climate change, vulnerability, risk and resilience, and to utilise this information in spatial planning processes.

This will be done through a pilot project in the Andaman coastal region in southern Thailand in collaboration with Thai experts. The pilot project will involve a series of workshops with planners from the region and the national planning department, as well as related sectoral departments. The main outcomes should be an improved exchange between relevant stakeholders and an increased consideration of climate change adaptation and resilience building during planning processes. The resulting insights and lessons learned will contribute to the overarching National Adaptation Plan (NAP), which identified the human settlements sector as one of the six priority sectors at risk from climate change and identified spatial planning as an important tool to address these risks.
