Mainstreaming Climate Change into Community Development Strategies and Plans: A Case Study in ThailandType:PublicationPublication date:Objective:Sectors:
climate change adaptation planning in Thailand has focused primarily on minimizing the impacts of future climate change. The resulting preoccupation with the uncertainty of climate change predictions has hindered the implementation of adaptation policies. A paradigm shift towards mainstreaming climate change into development planning (including water-related plans), and away from addressing adaptation separately from development, can reduce the inaction of policymakers.
