Mangrove Project: Stakeholder workshop report, Thailand

Managing coastal resources involves understanding of complex systems containing both human and natural components. To manage these systems, institutions with divergent interests and expertise are called upon to work together. In Southeast Asia pressures on the coastal area is characterised by an increasing intensification of shrimp farms, expansion of aquaculture and conflicting interest in the management of coastal resources. In recent years impact of natural hazards has increased the vulnerability of coastal communities. In this report, we summarise the outcome of the first MANGROVE Project stakeholder workshop in Nakhon Si Thammarat in the Gulf of Thailand. The objectives of the workshop, held 6 March 2008, were to:

  • Review and discuss project problem definition from different stakeholder perspectives.
  • Understand how different stakeholders are affected in different ways.
  • Understand what kind of solutions are presented and by whom?
