Hydrological zoning (or simply zoning) is an approach to divide land into different zones based on their hydrological properties. Typically, each type of zone has different land use and development regulations linked to it. This land and water management method aims to protect local water sources from risks of over-abstraction, land salinization, groundwater pollution and waterlogging by managing land use activities based on the assigned hydrological zones. For example, zones with a high groundwater table, large amounts of surface water (e.g.

Managing risks in the water sector is necessary to alleviate damage and the consequences of natural disasters such as flooding and drought, and to increase agricultural production to ensure food security for the country. This paper presents a risk management framework in Thailand for the sustainable development of water resources by taking flood and drought risks and climate change into account in the policy planning process. Then, regional and sub-regional spatial strategies can be identified to ensure that the risks do not increase and to prevent redundant investments.
