Khlong Thom – Thailand

Community upstream-forest management for sustainable protection and maintenance of the main tourism resource base

Khlong Thom is an area with abundant natural resources and environment, especially water which is the main tourism resource. Because of extended agricultural practices (palm oil and rubber) the water level and quality have been reduced over time. This effects the local hot spring, the main tourist attraction of the area, and other water attractions. The solution proposed is based on surveillance, problem reporting, and a creation of a reforestation plan.
